OUR NEW INITIATIVE…

As we now understand that there is a strong correlation between cardiovascular complications and diabetes, we have expanded our mission to include cardiovascular and renal disease. To that end, we have created a specialized subgroup within Worldwide Diabetes, named “Worldwide CardioDiabetes.” Led by a world-renowned Board of Directors, our first initiative was an international congress in partnership with the Sociedad Mexicana de Nutrición y Endocrinología, September 27-28, 2019, in Guadalajara, Mexico. The two-day course included 20 international and national speakers and was attended by 250 health care professionals. A 2020 international congress is currently being planned.
