DESMOND Australia at the IDF Western Pacific Region Congress 2016


The DESMOND Australia team will be travelling to Taipei, Taiwan in October to attend the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) 11th Western Pacific Congress and 8th Scientific Meeting of the Asian Association for the Study of Diabetes, hosted by the Chinese Taipei Diabetes Association and the Taiwanese Association of Diabetes Educators.

The main theme of the congress is ‘creating a new dimension in diabetes: prevention, protection and care’.

DESMOND Australia will be sending Operations Manager Deb Schofield to present two abstracts to the congress. The first abstract, DESMOND: Does it deliver for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, will be presented as a poster and the second abstract, Fidelity: The missing dimension in structured diabetes education around the globe, has been selected as an oral presentation.
