[IP] Of Interest to All Diabetics

This Thursday, August 28th, Dr. Enrico Benedetti, Chief of the Division of
Transplantation, and Dr. Jose Oberhozer, Director of the Islet Transplant
Program at the University of Chicago, Illinois (UIC) will share their
expertise and answer your questions online at www.DiabetesStation.com. 

Under Dr. Benedetti's direction, the team at UIC performs a full range of
pancreas and islet transplants (including pancreas transplant before the
of kidney disease and living-related donor pancreas transplant) as well as
partial pancreatectomy followed by islet cell transplant. 

Dr. Oberholzer, who joined UIC as the Director of the Islet Transplant
Program just this month, heads up one of the top, state-of-the-art islet
cell isolation
and transplant facilities in the world. He came from the University of
Alberta in Edmonton, where he had been a Clinical and Research Fellow. Prior
Edmonton, Dr. Oberholzer was head of the islet program at the University of
Geneva, Switzerland. 

We hope you will be able to join us to ask questions and to learn more about
the options of pancreas and islet cell transplantation.
