We are pleased to invite you to join us this fall for the 14th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting, from November 6 to November 8, 2014, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
This will be an excellent opportunity to meet leading scientists in the field of diabetes research and learn about the latest technological advances for people with diabetes. Last year’s meeting in San Francisco, California, brought together over 450 clinicians and scientists from 24 countries to focus on applying science and technology to fight diabetes.
The meeting’s goal is to assemble technology developers and users to facilitate creation of new and cost-effective tools - including an artificial pancreas - to help people with diabetes. The meeting will particularly emphasize original data. Scientists and clinicians will have plenty of opportunities to share ideas in both formal and informal settings, and gain insight into how to help decrease the physical and psychological burden of diabetes.
The format will include state-of-the-art lectures, oral presentations of abstracts, panel discussions with Q & A sessions, and two poster sessions. A syllabus of the submitted abstracts will be distributed to all attendees.
Differentiate emerging technologies for managing and improving diabetes care.
Review progress in the development of an artificial pancreas system and why this may be key for improving lifestyle of difficult to treat diabetes patients.
Identify emerging technologies for blood glucose monitoring.
Explain the patient health benefits of current and emerging technologies for improving detection of hypoglycemia.
List two new methods for insulin and metabolic peptide delivery and how these can improve patient safety and adherence to treatment strategies.
Identify three features of diabetes social media.
Identify three types of wearable devices that can provide physiologic data for people with diabetes.
Explain what is big data and how it can be used in treating diabetes.
Diabetes Technology Society (DTS) is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting development and use of technology in the fight against diabetes. DTS was established in 2001 by David C. Klonoff, MD, FACP, Clinical Professor of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco.
