We focus on five distinct areas of the most cutting-edge diabetes management strategies:
1. Understanding the emotional and behavioral issues that affect adherence and glycemic control in people living with diabetes
2. Lowering Cardiorenal Risk While Improving Glycemic Control with oral agents: Understanding and effective use of the new ADA treatment algorithm.
3. Practical Application of individualized insulin strategies and a close look at the cardiovascular effects of the GLP1-RAs
4. A Focus on Time in Range, Unmet Needs & Modern Management of Type 1 Diabetes: continuous glucose monitors, insulin pumps, hybrid closed loop systems, adjunctive therapies and techniques to improve time in range
5. Diabetes criminals and the diabetes police: A workshop to focus on the provider patient relationship

• Evaluate the use of SGLT-2 and GLP-1 RA in patients who have cardiovascular risks factors and are at risk or have a history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD).
• Discuss approaches to combination therapy with the currently available oral agents, as well as physician and patient-directed insulin titration strategies and the basal-bolus approach.
• Design a treatment plan for multiple daily injection regimens and insulin pump therapy including hybrid closed loop systems.
