Congenital Hyperinsulinism International

The 2021 Virtual Research Conference

CHI is pleased to announce that the 2021 Congenital Hyperinsulinism Virtual Research Conference will occur on Saturday, September 18, 2021. The conference will be open to the entire CHI community. It will include live panels and presentations from the leading experts in the field of HI, videos, interactive Q & A, and an exhibit space with the latest information from our sponsors and partners. Full details, including agenda topics, speakers, and interactive sessions, will be coming soon.

We are seeking proposals for presentations for the conference sessions on identifying the gaps in structure, knowledge, expertise (human resources), tools, and funding, to treat HI more effectively and ultimately find a cure. We encourage all researchers and clinicians with an interest in congenital hyperinsulinism to apply.
