A great tasting lunch and the opportunity to connect and make some new friends who totally get you. You’ll walk away feeling lighter, brighter and glad you spent your day with TCOYD.
MAKING THE CONNECTION
The ultimate goal of our CME conferences is to educate caregivers & clinicians.
This CME program covers the most effective cutting-edge strategies to help patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes reach their treatment goals and avoid the associated acute and chronic complications. Far from boring, these aren’t your typical CME lectures. We promise to infuse a little humor, some good eats, and interesting interaction along the way.
Diabetes workshops that keep you upbeat & pretty darn confident when it comes to managing your diabetes.
Our Wednesday evening Spotlights will bring you the most up to date information on managing your type 1 and type 2 diabetes. A wide range of topics are covered and presented by expert speakers. Join us in San Diego, for an informative evening.
