5th Annual Diabetes Symposium: New Advances and Trends
Saturday, October 8, 2016
The 5th Annual Diabetes Symposium: New Advances and Trends has been specifically designed for practicing endocrinologists, primary care physicians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified diabetes educators, dietitians, nurses and trainees. The agenda developed by the course directors, Serge Jabbour, MD and Jeffrey Miller, MD, will include in-depth presentations on a myriad of hot topics, including keynote lectures on type 2 diabetes management and the management of diabetes in the inpatient setting. In addition, current recommendations will be discussed regarding diet, exercise and pharmacology, as well as bariatric surgery in obesity management. We will also have enough time for questions & answers after the keynote lectures, ending the day with cases for discussion where our expert faculty will provide guidance to participants in applying the new knowledge and clinical guidelines into their practices.
The ultimate goal of the 5th Annual Diabetes Symposium is to provide a unique educational and learning experience to practitioners, allowing them to improve the delivery of care for diabetic patients.
