Children with Diabetes is proud to announce the third CWD President's Award for Innovation. The award is presented to the health care professional that exemplifies extraordinary leadership in using innovation and advancements in technology for insulin delivery and devices that help people with diabetes to thrive.
Selected by CWD President Mr. Jeffrey Hitchcock, this year's recipient is Bruce Buckingham, MD, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Pediatric Endocrinology at Stanford Medical Center and Stanford Children’s Hospital. Renowned for his groundbreaking research in continuous glucose monitoring in children and closed-loop (artificial pancreas) systems, Dr. Buckingham has served as the principal investigator in multiple NIH, JDRF, and Helmsley-sponsored research studies. Furthermore, his dedication extends to his role as a cherished faculty member at Children with Diabetes' Friends for Life conferences.
As automated insulin delivery systems become the standard of care for people living with type 1 diabetes, CWD would like to recognize Dr. Buckingham for his strong advocacy for these systems from the early stages of their development all the way to the current state-of-the art systems such as Tandem Control IQ, Omnipod 5, Medtronic 780G, CamAPS FX, and Beta Bionics iLet.
The solid silver President’s Medal will be presented to the recipient on the occasion of the annual ATTD Conference. Each President’s Medal also has a cash award that will be made by CWD, in the name of the respective recipient, to a charity of their choosing. Invited guests will receive a bronze version of the President's Medal as a memento.
This year's award will be presented during a dinner on Friday, March 8, 2024 at the St. Regis Florence, Piazza Ognissanti, 3, Firenze. The pre-dinner cocktail reception begins at 19:00, followed by dinner and award presentation. Attendance is by invitation only and registration is required.
