17th Annual Chicago Diabetes Day

Chicago, IL US
May 20, 2023
This activity's goal is to provide practitioners and scientists with a comprehensive overview of the depth and breadth of clinical and scientific diabetology. The curriculum will emphasize biochemistry and physiology, including cell and molecular biology related to diabetes and obesity. In addition, a critical review of the evidence-based medical literature will be emphasized. It will have two keynote speakers on the topics of diabetes prevention and the role of pancreatic islets in diabetes pathogenesis. Clinical and scientific research in diabetes, endocrinology, and other internal medicine subspecialties related to diabetes pathogenesis will be emphasized. This activity will discuss unique, multifaceted perspectives on diabetes research and care, thinking about variables related to what one needs to overcome challenges related to the diagnosis and management of diabetes and obesity. This activity focuses on interventions for weight loss, factors impacting diabetes outcomes in low-income populations, the fundamental physiology of diabetes and obesity pathogenesis at the organismal and cellular level, and other important and distinct topics typically not discussed in other activities.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for physicians, scientists, nurse practitioners, nurses, diabetes educators, students, and other healthcare professionals dedicated to scientific advances in diabetes diagnosis, management, and treatment.

Learning Objectives

After this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Identify scientific factors that cause diabetes and approaches to prevent it;
  • Summarize the role of proteins in the trafficking of membranes in pancreatic beta cells;
  • Outline engineering approaches to fat cells that control inflammation;
  • Describe digital interventions to address eating disorders and weight management;
  • Discuss current research on how new pancreatic beta cells form in the pancreas;
