The purpose of the Diabetes Research Journal Club is to discuss current literature in the area of Diabetes, bringing us all up to date with current issues in the field. Each member will be asked to pick a date to briefly (5 minutes) present an article from the journal of their choice, which will be followed by group discussion. However, everyone is invited to brief the group on articles he/she may have found of interest at every meeting.
