Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease: Risk and Management - Webcast

Activity Description

CME Release Date: 07/10/13
CME Expiration Date: 07/10/14

Statement of Need

Because the majority of people with diabetes and thyroid disease are cared for by their primary care providers, PCPs need a comprehensive review and update on clinical 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, incorporating participant interaction in smaller breakout sessions, interactive workshops, and question-and-answer opportunities for a dynamic learning experience.

This internet enduring material was developed from the following presentation by the faculty on November 1-3, 2012 at the Advances in Diabetes and Thyroid Disease 2012 course in Boston, MA.

Target Audience

This certified activity was developed for primary care providers with a practice population that includes significant numbers of people with diabetes.
