Video Highlights from 2nd Asia Diabetes Conclave

In April 2015, the Worldwide Initiative for Diabetes Education, the Korean Diabetes Society and AstraZeneca partnered to develop a scientific medical education activity in Seoul, Korea entitled “2nd Asia Diabetes Conclave on Effective Diabetes Management: A Patient-Centered Approach.” This two-day program featured a comprehensive mixture of didactic presentations, workshops and debates.
In order to further the reach of this program, we offer you the opportunity to view five key segments of the program. Each features footage of the actual presentation with accompanying audiovisuals and text to maximize viewing and understanding.

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.

Please check back frequently as we continue to post additional resources to support
our educational initiative.
