This continuing medical education initiative, now in its 21st year, will provide Spanish-speaking endocrinologists, internists, and family physicians with important information regarding advances in the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine and metabolic diseases. This premiere educational forum for Latin American physicians, as well as those in the United States who treat Spanish-speaking patients, will combine didactic lectures, interactive workshops, and one-on-one meetings for a comprehensive learning experience.

New Focus on Obesity Education

Given the current focus on obesity as a disease and the obligation of professionals to understand its diagnosis and treatment, Worldwide Diabetes is committed to providing educational programs that will advance the knowledge of healthcare professionals of this important disease state.

We invite you to learn more about our initiatives here and to view resources that relate to important topics such as the pathophysiology of obesity, the mechanism of action of therapeutic options, and a clinical review of current and emerging treatments.
