Note of Sympathy to our Colleagues in Ukraine

Dear Friends in Ukraine,

CEDA/FID was founded in 1969 to strengthen the exchange and  collaboration between diabetologists from western and eastern Europe in order to promote science resulting in better patient outcomes. Even after the fall of the iron curtain in 1989, CEDA continued to bring together experts from a continuously growing number of nations in this region reaching far into the east.

We would like to express our deep sympathy to you, our friends in Ukraine who are going through incredibly difficult times aggrieved with fears for their loved ones. We wish that you will stay safe and be able to care for your families as well as for your patients. We hope that the armed conflicts will come to an end soon and the situation will be solved by diplomatic means.

Sincerely yours,

The CEDA Board

Central European Diabetes Association
