Montreal 2009 Impressions

The World Diabetes Congress in Montreal, Canada reconfirmed the event's position as one of the most significant dates on the global health calendar. The five-day congress attracted 12,000 international delegates to access the latest data and opinion from the scientific community, discuss key issues in diabetes care, and exchange information on how available resources can best be used to tackle the global diabetes problem.

Delegates left the congress energized by the experience and ready to take key learnings back to their countries to see how local adaption and implementation can best benefit people living with diabetes and those at risk.
