Overview

Diabetes affects 9.4% of the US population; in Kentucky, the prevalence is even higher, with 13-17% of the population impacted by this disease. Given the ubiquity of the disease state, diabetes care is a large part of providers' practices across the Commonwealth. Ensuring people with diabetes get proper care helps prevent complications throughout nearly every system in the body, from eyes to toes. These complications can negatively impact the length and quality of life and are costly to the healthcare system and the individual.

The conference will facilitate learning through lectures, panels, and cases on the latest research, technology, and medications in diabetes management.
