Program Overview

Currently, there is a gap in the knowledge of diabetes care providers about the recent advances in diabetes treatment and research leading to clinical inertia for diabetes management. In addition, recent published work shows that feedback by specialists to primary care physicians improves diabetes outcomes. The goal of this program is to translate basic and clinical diabetes research  into improvements in the care for patients with diabetes. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this symposium, participants should be able to–  

  • Discuss the  recent advances in obesity and diabetes research and treatment.
  • Discuss the pathogenesis and prevention of type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
  • Identify options for treatment in the patient with type 2 diabetes.
  • Describe the pathogenesis and prevention of microvascular and macrovascular complications in the patient with diabetes.  

Target Audience

This course has been designed for the primary care clinician.
