  1. Kudos to Joslin Diabetes Center for taking the initiative to organize this symposium. Such symposiums are highly pivotal, when it is seen that majority of the diabetics are unaware of the basics of diabetes care. Moreover, here, the entity to be hosting the event is the highly reputed Joslin; diabetics can just rest assured of getting apt guidance at this symposium.
