A Diabetes-Free Society

Diabetes Symposium Series

The Diabetes Symposium Series is a series of speakers discussing innovations and current trends in Diabetes Prevention, Care and Management.  This series was created for audiences that are less likely to engage in research and are interested in learning more about diabetes and its complications.  The symposium is open to all community members both inside and outside of the university.  A series of three symposiums are scheduled each semester.
