Event Overview
Welcome message:

At a time when our diabetes knowledge and treatment options have advanced so much, why do clinical outcomes remain suboptimal, with so many patients unable to achieve good control of their disease?

The answer is rooted in three challenges:

Keeping pace with rapidly advancing options for diabetes care

Accounting for a patient’s unique biological, psychological, social, financial, educational, and cultural factors

Overcoming structural healthcare barriers, requiring clinical strategies to fit within a particular mold

This established Harvard Medical School course offers practical strategies to address these challenges and updates that ensure you can deliver state-of-the-art care for your patients with diabetes.


This program affords you the opportunity to learn from leaders in the field of diabetes who are distinguished for their outstanding teaching, knowledge, and innovations in clinical care.

Expert guidance to design comprehensive treatment programs (non-pharmacological and pharmacological) for patients with diabetes

Guidance to account for biological, psychological, emotional, social, financial and cultural factors that impact the development and progression of diabetes

The newest data on the identification of patients at risk for type 2 diabetes and strategies to prevent or delay the disease process

The latest scientific information on the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes and its implications in clinical practice 

New guidelines and practice recommendations for nutrition and physical activity

How to navigate the recent and controversial data related to some antidiabetes medications

New technologies in diabetes care: updates and implications for day-to-day care

Research breakthroughs

Best practices that drive more effective treatment plans

Tips and tricks for navigating barriers within healthcare systems

Strategies to assess and improve low adherence to therapy


This program also provides comprehensive education to optimize the diabetes care you provide for special populations:

Racial and ethnic minorities

The elderly

Children and adolescents

Patients at low socio-economic levels

Patients with low health literacy/education

Patients with depression/emotional distress

The hospitalized patient with uncontrolled diabetes


In the course of three days, you will gain new, encompassing, evidence-based approaches to address the challenges seen in most clinical practices. More importantly, you will leave with knowledge—part art, part science—to make a real difference in the lives of your patients.
