Advances in Diabetes 2010 Webcast Series


Because the majority of people with diabetes are cared for by their primary care providers (PCPs), PCPs need a comprehensive review and update on diabetes management to provide optimal care. This annual CME course, initiated more than century ago by Elliott P. Joslin, MD, in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, is the longest-running academic course in diabetes in the United States and, likely, the world. The course has evolved with diabetes practice and research as well as the changing continuing education needs of the medical profession.

In November 2010, over 200 primary care providers met for two days in Boston to hear from national experts on the latest developments in diabetes treatment, insulin management, cardiovascular risk reduction, and other topics relevant to primary care providers and their patients.

These video/slide Web casts are speaker presentations recorded at the course. Click on an activity title below to view.
