Why Attend Scientific Sessions

Don’t Miss the Conference

At our annual Scientific Sessions, gain access to thousands of research presentations, learn about advances in treatment, and network with colleagues from around the world.

Last year’s conference brought together over 11,000 attendees, 130 speaker presentations, and 1,400 e-posters. Building upon that success, this year’s event promises an even more impactful experience, including:

  • A robust program highlighting a diverse range of diabetes-related topics—from cutting-edge research to innovative treatment and care practices
  • Educational content beneficial for both seasoned and early career professionals
  • Professional development courses to enhance your skillset in your specialty area
  • A new health equity track to engage in important discussions and actionable steps
  • The return of the Innovation Challenge, welcoming emerging companies to pitch pioneering ideas to improve the lives of people living with diabetes
  • Networking opportunities to engage and connect with your peers and leading diabetes experts 
  • A chance to earn CME/CE credits to enhance your professional development
  • And much more!
