Our warmest thank you to all students, staff and judges for their participation in the Diabetes Research Day Scientific Poster Session and Speaker Symposium. Without you, the event would not have been a success. We will be sending a date for next year’s event in the coming weeks and look forward to your participation in this annual celebration of the outstanding research that is being conducted by FOEDRC Investigators. We will appreciate receiving feedback from you regarding ways to improve the symposium. The organizers are already thinking about new ideas.
