Diabetes Management 2017

Friday, November 17, 2017
Bell Harbor International Conference Center
2211 Alaskan Way, Pier 66
Seattle, Washington

Obesity and diabetes mellitus have reached epidemic proportions in the past few years.  As the number of individuals with obesity and pre-diabetes continues to grow, primary care providers need to stay updated on treatment strategies to help their patients manage both diseases and prevent the long-term complications associated with each and, possibly, prevent the development of diabetes.  

This conference will focus on identifying and treating obesity and pre-diabetes, with strong attention to the practical use of nutrition and medications to treat these conditions.

This conference is intended for primary-care providers, including those in family practice and internal medicine, as well as other allied health professionals treating patients with diabetes in the Pacific Northwest.
