USC and Baylor Research Partners Co-Keynote Algerian #Diabetes Congress @KeckMedUSC @BCMHouston @USC

Professors David G. Armstrong of Keck School of Medicine of USC and Bijan Najafi of Baylor College of Medicine provided co-Keynote lectures at the 3rd Congress on Medical and Surgical Treatment of Diabetes in Algiers.  The symposium, which attracted some 400 physicians, surgeons and scientists from around the world featured a diverse series of topics, ranging from care of people in resource-poor regions to next generation cybersecurity and wearable technologies. “It was an honor to participate in this symposium” noted Dr. Armstrong “To see efforts being taken throughout the region to combat the scourge of this silent and sinister syndrome is not only exciting, it is inspiring.” Najafi was equally enthusiastic “I think the combination of technology and practicality seen at this meeting was surprising and unique. I think I speak for my long-time friend and research collaborator Dr. Armstrong when I say that we can learn a lot from our colleagues here and work to spread the message.”
