Welcome to ISPAE
The Indian Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Endocrinology (ISPAE) aims to promote greater knowledge, research, education and clinical practice of pediatric endocrinology, metabolism and diabetes, especially as relevant to India. It also hopes to foster closer interaction among those working in this specialty, across the vast geographical expanse of India, so our patients can get better and more seamless care. It works with other important Societies, including the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP), the Endocrine Society of India (ESI), the Asia Pacific Pediatric Endocrine Society (APPES), the European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), and the International Society for Pediatric & Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD).
Welcome to our website, which we constantly try to make more useful and interactive, for colleagues and patients (including several new patient material in English and Hindi), while we continue our regular features like the e-newsletter , CAPENEWS, now in its 19th year.
Our biennial meetings, and residential intensive pediatric endocrine training workshops, from ISPAE 2009 and ISPAE-PET 2009 (Delhi), then in Calicut, Bangalore, and now a very successful meeting in Gurgaon in November, have become much awaited events. PET, started with the help of ESPE and APPES, and an innovation for India, has been appreciated and imitated! Our annual Chapter Symposiums during the annual IAP meetings, PEDICON, are also well attended, as more and more pediatricians realize the importance of this hitherto neglected specialty. We look forward to an exciting mid term meeting ISPAE 2016 in Nashik (Maharashtra) in October 2016, and ISPAE with ISPAE-PET 2017 in Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu) in 2017.
