This conference will highlight the latest concepts and devices in the treatment of obesity and diabetes. The symposium will offer specialists and primary care providers an interactive venue where leading experts will discuss diabetes prevention, obesity management, starting and progressing care, advanced diabetes care, managing co‐morbid conditions, and emerging trends and technology for diabetes patients. Incorporating Digital and Health Coaching Approaches into Practice to Improve Diabetes Care will be highlighted throughout the course and provide an update on the latest research and evidence base to support these approaches and will offer practical, real‐world methods of incorporating both techniques within a practice environment to improve diabetes care. The course will be taught by nationally and internationally known experts who are actively involved in clinical trials and studies related to the management of obesity and diabetes. Physicians will be provided with the necessary context to integrate the relevant information into their practices to improve the quality of life for their affected patients.
