This is a two day program with the specific purpose of increasing education and knowledge of all aspects of diabetes clinical practice and research. This symposium consists of medical lectures and workshops given by healthcare professionals (not all MD’s), investigators and patients on topics related to Diabetes Updates. The major format used is a series of thematic talks by recognized health professionals and are all followed by question and answer sessions along with feedback. There will also be a panel of physicians who will present case discussions and then open the floor to the audience for a Question and Answer Session. This course is designed for primary care physicians, adult endocrinologists, pediatric endocrinologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, dieticians, physician assistants, fellows, residents, and medical students.
