25th Diabetes Day:
Therapeutics, Technology and Surgery

Join Us at the 25th Annual Diabetes Day

Diabetes Day, Therapeutics, Technology and Surgery, is presented by the Cleveland Clinic Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism to provide up-to-date reviews of management strategies and research on the complications of diabetes. Key topic areas that will be addressed include a review of therapeutic options to manage both type 1 and 2 diabetes and the complications, including a pump update, dual hormone therapies, sulfonylureas, GLP1 agonists, metformin, and the role of exercise and fasting. New this year is a discussion of the pathophysiologic impact of COVID-19. The goal of this course is to increase practitioners’ competence and clinical performance to treat diabetes and its complications and, ultimately, to improve patient outcomes.

In addition to receiving speaker slides both pre and post course, participants will be given access to the live stream recording post course.

After participating in this live stream activity, practitioners will be able to:

  • Describe the efficacy and side effects of therapeutic innovations for type 1 diabetes, including closed-loop insulin pumps, dual hormone therapy, and glucagon.
  • Compare the effectiveness of new and emerging therapies for both type 1 and 2 diabetes.
  • Critically appraise the impact of bariatric surgery on patients with type 2 diabetes.
  • Describe options for treating children with type 2 diabetes.
  • Compare the data on effectiveness of diets and exercise in diabetes strategies.
  • Summarize research defining the pathophysiologic impact of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.
  • Describe how COVID-19 affects the progression of diabetes in infected patients.

This activity is designed for primary care physicians, endocrinologists, diabetes educators, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dietitians, and other health care professionals who care for patients with diabetes.
