Message from the President
As President of the Association, it is a very arduous task, but for the love of all our children and young people with diabetes it is worthwhile to continue fighting for a better quality of life. And at the same time to continue looking for alliances between associations to learn new methods and teachings that facilitate a happier life and improve quality of life.
