Diabetes epidemiology and intervention focus of symposium

IDF is organising a joint symposium dedicated to the IDF Diabetes Atlas and its BRIDGES programme.

Join us to discover the latest worldwide estimates on diabetes and learn about the practical solutions supported by IDF to prevent the condition and its complications.

The symposium will include an overview by region of the diabetes epidemic as well as new estimates on gestational diabetes from the Diabetes Atlas.

It will also showcase two projects supported by IDF BRIDGES: a prevention programme in Barranquilla, Colombia leads by Professor Jaakko Tuomilehto and a project dedicated to GDM in Tianjin, China.

The symposium will take place on December 5th at 17.15 (room 201 of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre). This will be followed by a cocktail reception.
