My (islet) transplant surgeon, Dr. Jose Oberholzer, will be speaking at the Oak Park YMCA about the work that the Chicago Diabetes Project is doing in finding a cure the Type 1 diabetes.
The Chicago Diabetes Project is a different kind of research paradigm with researchers collaborating globally to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. Rather then fighting for resources and information they're actually working together to speed along results, and hopefully bring a cure to diabetes community more quickly.
I can't say enough positive things about my experiences with Dr. O, and the Chicago Diabetes Project. If you are interested in diabetes research and pancreatic islet transplantation I encourage you to attend. Admission is free.
