What is your presentation about?
During my talk, I will discuss the challenges of the management of glycemic control in young children and present the data on the most recent advances in the use of technology in this age group.

What makes this topic important in 2022?
Despite the development and approval of several new systems, most young children do not meet the criteria for glycemic outcomes based on ADA guidelines.

How did you become involved with this area of diabetes research or care?
As a pediatric endocrinologist, I have been involved in diabetes technology research in the pediatric population for about 8 years.

What are you most looking forward to at the 82nd Scientific Sessions?
I am looking forward to an in-person meeting for more networking and potential collaboration.
