Mission

The diabetes epidemic demands a powerful response from leaders in the diabetes community, nationally and globally. By bringing together the best minds across payers, providers, industry, government, research, prevention and treatment, Diabetes Innovation 2013 will act as a powerful marketplace of ideas, partnerships and collaboration to provoke thought, innovation and action that address the cost, productivity and quality of life impact of diabetes on our society.

Diabetes Innovation 2013 will provide a powerful foundation for sustained focus and excitement for advancement in all facets of diabetes prevention, treatment and payment reforms –from social media and gaming to translational research breakthroughs to mobile patient technologies and everything in between.

The Diabetes Innovation 2013 and Joslin Diabetes center issues a challenge to key leaders to be the catalyst for new partnerships, practical and affordable solutions, and hope in our common goal of a future without diabetes, its complications and co morbidities—and with billions of dollars in savings.
