ISPAD is proud to announce that the Allan Drash Fellowship has been awarded to two candidates:

Dr. Ioanna Kosteria (Greece) will
join Dr Michael Witsch and his team in Luxembourg during her clinical fellowship to improve her skills and knowledge around the creation and use  of a diabetes registry for benchmarking and quality of care evaluation. Using the electronic patient records and work with a multidisciplinary team will be central.

Dr. Deepa Subramonian (Cayman Islands) will undertake a clinical fellowship under Dr. Antoinette Moran (United States). She will participate in a diabetes camp and attend the multidisciplinary care unit in Minneapolis.
