What is it about?

Since its beginning, Diabetes Care has become a premier journal enhancing communication between scientific and clinical communities. The journal seems to have come full circle from its first issue in 1978 with an early description of pancreas transplantation; to insulin therapy and diabetes management during the 80s, new insights and therapies in the 90s; refinements in clinical research, diagnosis, epidemiology, and pregnancy in the 2000s; and more recently the first randomized crossover trials of a wearable artificial pancreas system in 2016. In the last decade, the journal has introduced several new programs and features, including an annual symposium presented at the American Diabetes Association’s annual Scientific Sessions, the annual Expert Forum panel discussion, and special-topic article collections.
