Message from the President

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Associazione Medici Diabetologi (AMD). AMD promotes clinical and therapeutic research in the diabetes field and collaborates with other institutions that have common goals and interests. During these years AMD has shared IDF’s objectives: it has constantly enhanced the research and updating of scientific content.
The great scientific activity of AMD and its committment to make assistance and treatment for people with diabetes more effective have meant that today AMD has a shared esteem, not only by Italian institutions. AMD preserves its identity but aims to renew itself, looking to the future at issues such as multidisciplinary approach, digital health and artificial intelligence.
