For an additional fee, we are offering a hands-on experience with one of the commercially available continuous glucose monitors for participants interested in the patient perspective. You will be able to place the sensor on yourself and review your glucose reports in real-time, both before and during the conference. We will also review how to interpret the CGM reports during the conference to help you understand the analysis reports for both patients as well as yourself.
