Comprehensive Risk Factor Management: The Future of Diabetes Care

This symposium discusses the rationale for aggressive treatment of diabetes when the patient displays cardiovascular risk factors. We will focus on implementing knowledge into practice through use of lecture and clinical problem solving scenarios. Professionals attending will learn how to integrate nutrition, drug and psychological interventions into recommendations. If you work with patients who have both diabetes and cardiovascular risk factors, you won't want to miss this two-day symposium.
