Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have two important announcements:
1. We continue to plan for the conference to proceed in July. As local and national government mandates change, we will make an announcement here and through our email lists should this no longer be the case.
2. We extended our early-bird rate until 4/30/20. Please be sure to book in our room block first to get the discounted rate ($75!) on your registration fees. Check the lodging and travel page for links and information on how to book your accommodations.

This is an annual course designed to help healthcare providers caring for patients with diabetes, including but not limited to: endocrinologists/diabetes specialists, internists, pediatricians, family physicians, physician assistants, medical residents and fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, social workers, and certified diabetes educators.
During the course of this four-day conference, we will emphasize the challenges in day-to-day management of diabetes and practical ways to overcome those hurdles, specifically using new technologies.
Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in hands-on technology workshop,
consult with leaders in the field, and participate in detailed question and answer sessions with the experts. For type 1 diabetes, there will be plenaries on implementing technology, algorithms, artificial pancreas systems, CGM pumps, pregnancy, and pediatric new onset education. For type 2 diabetes, there will be a plenary on the drug approval process, challenges in emerging diabetes solutions, prevention and acute complications, emerging topics, practical aspects of managing diabetes, and individual therapy. During the four-day conference, we will emphasize the challenges in day-to-day management of diabetes and practical ways to overcome those hurdles, specifically using new technologies. In 2020, we welcome back the FDA to give Keynotes on Thursday and Friday morning.
The conference is hosted by the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes in conjunction with the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine. It is supported by the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and both industry sponsorships and grants.
