What is this about?

In this weeks podcast episode, I like to share with you the insights I gained in last weeks annual summit of the “European Association for the Study of Diabetes”. I listened to many scientist and their latest findings in the field of diabetes. This episode is an exclusive summary for you of those fascinating findings!

The summit lasted 5 days and included a scientific programme with more than 1,200 talks and presentations on the latest results in diabetes research by leading experts in the field.

In the last years this annual summit took place in Barcelona, Berlin, Lisbon, Stockholm and many other places. But due to the current crises it was fully virtual this year and gave me the opportunity to join from home.

What is EASD?

The European Association for the Study of Diabetes” e.V. (EASD) is a non-profit, medical scientific association, founded in 1965 and is based in Düsseldorf, Germany. Their main aim is to bring groundbreaking diabetes research together to share, support, acquire and apply quickly the new knowledge.

ESAD has more than 5.000 active members from over 100 countries and is therefore one of the largest networks for diabetes experts worldwide!
