COURSE DESCRIPTION

Anyone who provides care for people with (or at risk for) diabetes knows that these patients often have a myriad of comorbidities and complications, and that optimizing their care is frequently complex and challenging. If you are to be successful, it is critically important that you understand the latest techniques used to motivate your patients to modify their lifestyles and impact obesity; are current with newer medications, insulins, and devices used to treat the hyperglycemia of diabetes; and can skillfully manage the comorbidities that put your patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease, dominant liver disease NAFLD (which may afflict an astounding 70 to 100 million Americans), and other complications.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we developed this program. Clinicians can rely on this course for comprehensive updates, practice recommendations, and the newest evidence-based strategies for state-of-the-art treatment, prevention, diagnosis, and education of the diabetic patient.

If you provide care for people with diabetes, this course will prove invaluable. It will inform, update, and inspire you, and you will return to your practice empowered to be a more effective clinician in the care of your patients who have or are at risk for diabetes.
