Diabetisy Nordic: hybrid meeting on March 9-11:

The meeting Diabesity Nordic, organized in collaboration with the SSSD, will be held as a hybrid event on March 9-11 2022 (meeting venue: Solstrand Hotel, Bergen). For meeting details and registration, please see https://atlanticmice.eventsair.com/diabesity-nordic.

Here is a summary from the organizers of the meeting:

Diabetes epidemic is associated with dramatic increase in obesity and risk of devastating complications. Nevertheless, not all people with obesity will develop diabetes, and not all of the patients with diabetes will progress to complications. The question who should be at highest risk group for intensive intervention is still not well understood. This Scandinavian alliance meeting “Diabesity Nordic” is organized in collaboration with SSSD by researchers in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. The meeting will be hosting leading Nordic and international obesity and diabetes experts with intention to plan actions and collaborations how to put into practice scientific evidence on risk factors for future diabetes, obesity and associated complications, focusing on different subgroups of type 2 diabetes.


The meeting will be held as a hybrid event, with the possibility to present virtually or physically at the congress venue. There will also be a poster session with associated blitz talk for younger researchers. The deadline for submitting an abstract is 25th of February.


The SSSD meeting in 2021 was originally planned to take place at Scandic Nidelven in Trondheim from March 12 to March 14, directly after the annual meeting of the Norwegian Endocrine Society.

Regrettably the Covid-19 situation precluded us from arranging a physical SSSD meeting in 2021. Instead, the SSSD meeting will be held as a virtual meeting on Thursday March 11 and Friday March 12 2021.

About SSSD

The Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD) was established in the 1960s. The aim of the SSSD is to bring together people with an interest in diabetes research, both from Nordic countries and elsewhere. We hold annual meetings aiming to strengthen collaborative relationships that will lead to advancement in diabetes research. The international board of the SSSD presently consists of Bjørn Olav Åsvold (chair) and Kåre Birkeland for Norway, Johanna Lempainen and Heli Siljander for Finland, Malin Flodström Tullberg and Niels Wierup for Sweden, Esben Søndergaard and Kristian Karstoft for Denmark and Helga Sigurjonsdottir and Ragnar Grímur Bjarnason from Iceland. We strongly encourage everyone residing in - and also outside - the Nordic countries who is interested in diabetes research to participate in the yearly meetings.
