Dear attendees,

We are closely monitoring the nationwide concern over COVID-19 and are closely following Medical College of Wisconsin administration guidelines.  As of this moment, we are planning to host the event.  However, this may change at any time and final decisions on whether the conference will be held will be made by the end of March 2020.

Thank you,

The organizing committee

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.  The major format used is a series of thematic talks by recognized health professional 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.

Adult Endocrinologists, Pediatric Endocrinologists, Fellows,
Residents, Medical Students, Dietitians, Physician Assistants,
