Volunteers have an important role to play at the IDF Congress 2017. We welcome applications from those who are interested in being a part of this significant scientific event in Abu Dhabi.
Whether you are someone who simply enjoys the excitement of volunteering for big events, or have a specific interest in diabetes research and education, your contribution as a volunteer will be crucial to the success of the Congress.
Volunteers will be assigned specific roles after an initial screening of applications. Roles include:

- PowerPoint operator
