The 9th Annual Diabetes Symposium of Wisconsin

Milwaukee, WI US
May 12, 2016 to May 13, 2016

Our symposium 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. Inclusion of patient perspectives is a new feature in this year's program.  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.
