Diabetes Research Update at Hoag


I am so grateful for the state-of-the-art Mary and Dick Allen Diabetes Center at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach. It’s making a difference by improving the quality of life for all people with diabetes or at risk of diabetes in our community. Please join the Allen Diabetes Center for its first in a series JDRF Research Forums Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. The guest speaker is David Scharp, M.D., Founder, President and CEO of Prodo Laboratories and The Scharp-Lacy Research Institute.

Dr. Scharp will discuss the status of current clinical islet transplantation focusing on the results and limitations as it exists today. Then, he will turn to the things that need to be done in order to make this treatment possible for all of those that can benefit from it as a readily available treatment.  The funds raised by JDRF devoted to research to find a cure for type I diabetes. It promises to be an interesting lecture for all of us whose lives are affected by diabetes.

520 Superior Ave. Newport Beach.
