Diabetes UnConference, Las Vegas
Read more about this conference
Traditional conferences focus on a group of experts or panels to share information with an audience, with a question and answer period at the end. The agenda and tracks are set well in advance. Participants may have to choose between sessions, so that if they attend one presentation, they’ll miss another. There is very limited time to participate in group discussions between participants and often the only time to learn from peers is in the hallways or during meals.
At The Diabetes UnConference, every participant is an expert. All attendees can ask and answer questions and learn from their peers in a safe setting where there is no judgement or wrong answer. Topics may include: diabetes burnout, depression, sex, discrimination, financial issues, getting inspired to exercise, family, or even what the best treatment for hypoglycemia is for each person.
