Overview:

The Diabetes Update section on Thursday focuses on new ideas and therapies relevant to patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Discussion will also include aspects in the prevention of the disorders. Advances in Endocrinology and Metabolism on Friday and Saturday will provide the clinician with updated, pragmatic information about the management of common endocrinologic and metabolic problems, as well as insight into important areas in current clinical research. Formal presentations will be accompanied by question and answer periods with general discussion. Clinical cases will focus on common endocrine problems encountered in clinical practice. It is expected that the participants will gain new skills and strategies to manage these disorders.

TARGET AUDIENCE
This course is intended for general internists, family physicians, general practitioners, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists, and other allied health professionals.
