2019 THEME: The Ever-Evolving Pediatric Diabetes Landscape


We continue to tailor the agenda to address new treatment approaches, new technology and continuing to develop a BC Pediatric Diabetes Network with the objective of standardizing pediatric diabetes care across the province.


  • We have moved to a  larger venue that we feel will better suit our discussions!
  • Based on the 2018 feedback  we have included two breakout sessions designed specifically to address the nursing support services (NSS)  educational needs—but everyone is welcome to attend these breakouts.
