Coming Soon: The World’s Largest Diabetes Meeting

Why are more than 13,000 of the world’s leading diabetes experts gathering in Philadelphia June 8 through 12?

To Stop Diabetes®.

Attendees at the American Diabetes Association’s 72nd Scientific Sessions will lead the charge to Stop Diabetes by sharing the latest cutting-edge research and learning the most up-to-date information on approaches to prevention, treatment and care.

The setting will be the Pennsylvania Convention Center, where conference-goers will hear from more than 800 individual presenters and view three miles’ worth of poster sessions.

What does all this mean for people with diabetes? No other meeting in the world brings together the same number and caliber of physicians, scientists, nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, pharmacists, podiatrists, psychologists and other professionals who treat people with diabetes.

Companies that develop medications will also have an opportunity to present new research and discuss current and emerging treatments with these health care providers. And with the shortage of diabetes researchers, Scientific Sessions gives young researchers the recognition and encouragement they need to take their career to the next level.

Not to mention, the media buzz generated from this meeting helps raise awareness of the importance of diabetes.

Speaking of buzz, you’ll want to follow this blog, the Association’s website, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter (hashtag #ADA2012) as we report the top breaking news from the 72nd Scientific Sessions in the coming days. Day by day, we’ll translate the latest research findings and tell you what they mean for people affected by diabetes.

So watch for the breaking diabetes science news coming out of Scientific Sessions, starting tomorrow! We’re excited to share the latest with diabetes professionals and patients alike.
