ISPAD 2014 - 40th Anniversary Conference - Toronto, Canada
Quickfire Question & Answer with Denis Daneman and Jill Hamilton, ISPAD 2014 Conference Presidents

How did you both feel when Toronto was selected for ISPAD 2014 and you were asked to be conference presidents, and when did this happen?

We were both elated and humbled to be chosen to host ISPAD's 40th Anniversary Conference in Toronto. We were in Buenos Aires, Argentina for ISPAD 2010 when we were asked. It is a huge privilege to be able to invite the world to our city, Toronto.

What do you think people can expect from this year´s ISPAD conference and why in your opinion will this year’s ISPAD conference be the best ever?

Our theme is "Diversity in diabetes," which is in harmony with the diverse nature of Toronto. We are planning a somewhat different program with novel approaches to common issues in diabetes and diverse speakers from around the world. We hope to showcase Toronto as the city where insulin was discovered and where ongoing contributions to our understanding of diabetes remain front and centre.

In just one sentence, why are you an ISPAD Member and why would you recommend ISPAD delegates to join the society?

We joined ISPAD because of the unique opportunity it provides us to interact with healthcare professionals from around the world who share a passion for children and youth with diabetes. It is the highlight of our academic year: the chance to catch up on the latest development with our friends and colleagues in an open, welcoming and friendly atmosphere.

Registration, abstract submission and standard travel grant applications are now available online at
