Diabetes Technology Society (DTS) is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting development and use of technology in the fight against diabetes. DTS was established in 2001 by David C. Klonoff, MD, FACP, FRCP (Edin), Fellow AIMBE, Clinical Professor of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco (CV).
The DTS mission is to spearhead collaborative efforts by experts in academia, clinical practice, industry, and government to accelerate development of practical technology for treating, monitoring, diagnosing, and preventing diabetes mellitus and its complications.
In pursuit of its goals, DTS works closely with many government agencies, national organizations, and medical schools. DTS also maintains regular communication with developers and manufacturers of pharmaceutical drugs, devices, and software for diabetes care.
DTS presents three scientific conferences each year. Several thousand scientists and researchers from more than 25 countries regularly participate in these highly successful conferences.
