Continuing Education: 2-day Symposium: 11 Hours (1.1 AOTA CEU) 1-day: Symposium: 5.5 Hours (.55 AOTA CEU) Friday, November 15 OR Saturday, November 16 Attend in person or participate via live-stream from anywhere with internet access!* Join us for the 22nd International 3S Symposium as we discuss the primary role sensory processing and sensory motor integration play in everything that we do and what that means for participation, function and self-actualization. Speakers from across a variety of disciplines will delve into the interplay of sensory processing and sensory motor experience with mental health domains and meaningful participation. This knowledge will transform your clinical practice by reframing challenging behaviors, supporting improved function and maximizing experiences of success for your clients and their families. Explore the crucial role sensory processing/sensory motor experience plays in shaping human development. We will examine the impact of sensation on ‘sense of self’ and self-agency. An expanded focus will include how the ‘self’ interacts within the external environment. Discover how both positively affect the individual’s relationships within the family and the community, as well as positively grow the individual’s physical capacities to interact in the world. This conference is designed for clinicians, researchers and professionals working with neurodiverse populations, including: occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, educators, child development specialists and mental health professionals. We also welcome parents, caregivers and carers, as well as individuals with disordered sensory processing. Professionals may also choose to attend the Pre-Symposium Professional Workshop* or Pre-Symposium Parent Workshop taking place the day before the Symposium. *The November 14, 2019 Pre-Symposium Professional Workshop will not be livestreamed.

Strategies for Clinical Imaging in Diabetes is organized by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and will be held from Jan 13 - 15, 2020 at National Institutes of Health campus, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America. Description: The ability to noninvasively image the cell types of the pancreatic islet and their function, particularly the beta cell, would allow diabetes researchers to observe and learn about the natural history of diabetes in living human beings. Most of the information we have currently about the fate of the insulin-producing cells comes from single snapshots taken in cadaver pancreas from people in various stages of diabetes. At this time, there are several promising imaging agents in various stages of development and validation. Objectives: This workshop is designed to provide a forum for discussion of the state of the art of in vivo imaging of the pancreatic islet beta cell mass and function, and the next steps toward this important goal. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
Jan 13 - 15, 2020 | Bethesda, Maryland
Imaging the Pancreas in Diabetes, and Benign and Malignant Exocrine Pancreatic Disease is organized by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and will be held from Jan 13 - 15, 2020 at NIH Campus, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America. Background: There are a large number of questions that are arising from clinical experience in the exocrine pancreas field that impact issues of diabetes pathogenesis, and vice versa—the observation of substantial changes in exocrine size and likely architecture that precede diabetes onset is one striking example of this. Other examples include inflammation and changes in organ blood flow, and the incidence of diabetes (both T1D and T2D) with exocrine diseases of various sorts. Treatment of a disease with an endocrine or exocrine pathogenesis can affect the function (good and bad) of the entire pancreas. It has become clear that while the endocrine and exocrine pancreas are studied by different communities, and the diseases are treated by people in different medical disciplines, there is a great deal to be learned at the intersection. Imaging of the pancreas is at that intersection. Many of the goals for imaging in the pancreas are similar for endocrinologists and pancreatologists, and include size, architecture and tissue physical properties such as stiffness, vasculature, nerves, inflammation, fibrosis and fat deposition. Even imaging goals specific to different disciplines, such as the goals to image islet and beta cell mass and function or to visualize tumors, can yield information that is likely to inform both communities of scientists and clinicians. Objectives: The goal of this symposium is to showcase the use of imaging in the pancreas to detect and explore the pathogenesis of diabetes, pancreatic cancers, pancreatitis and other pancreatic diseases, in humans and model systems. The emphasis is on observations and biology from the fields of diabetes and pancreas disease research that can potentially inform each other. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
