Message from André Lacroix, ISE Chairperson
Dear ISE community,
Over the last few weeks, we have all realized that humanity is facing a major worldwide public health crisis which is changing our societies profoundly. As ISE endocrinology community is distributed on all continents, you have been affected progressively, but are all affected currently. We hope that you and your close ones are all safe during these uncertain times.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus a pandemic and our health systems are severely under pressure. The elderly and individuals with pre-existing medical conditions seem to be more severely affected by this disease; this includes our patients with endocrine conditions – and in particular with diabetes the most prevalent disorder affecting our patients.
We wish to congratulate your current efforts to offer proper support and care to your patients who are fearful of the consequences of this pandemic on their health.

Upcoming World Days
World Health Day – April 7, 2020
World Health Day – 7 April 2020 is the day to celebrate the work of nurses and midwives and remind world leaders of the critical role they play in keeping the world healthy.
