Why are 13,000 of the world’s leading diabetes experts gathering in San Francisco next June?
To Stop Diabetes®.
Attendees at the American Diabetes Association's 74th Scientific Sessions are leading the charge to Stop Diabetes by sharing the latest cutting-edge research and learning the most up-to-date information on prevention, treatment and care.
Why It Matters to You
No other meeting in the world brings together the number and caliber of physicians, scientists, nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, pharmacists, podiatrists, psychologists and other health care professionals as the Association’s Scientific Sessions does.
Here is why this matters to you:
- The health care professionals who treat you come to Scientific Sessions to learn about new treatment approaches that will help you tomorrow and down the road.
- The companies that develop and provide the medications you use have an opportunity to present new research and to discuss current and emerging treatments with your health care providers.
- Media buzz generated from this meeting brings the importance of diabetes to the forefront of public discussion.
- With the shortage of diabetes researchers, Scientific Sessions gives young researchers the recognition and encouragement they need to take their career to the next level.
