Congenital Hyperinsulinism International (CHI) held the Fifth Congenital Hyperinsulinism Family Conference at the NH Milano 2 Hotel in Segrate, Italy just outside of Milan on September 17 and 18, 2013. It was an intensive two days of presentations on many aspects of congenital hyperinsulinism, from the experience of living with the condition, to the latest research on potential new treatment options. The meeting was remarkable for showcasing a good number of new research projects, treatment options being pursued, and patient advocates working to support congenital hyperinsulinism families. The take away from this meeting is that so much is happening worldwide to improve the lives of children born with the condition.
