Advances in Diabetes and Obesity Management, 2022

When the CME event was revived in 2016, leadership in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism were eager to blend the research breakthroughs occurring in the Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center with clinical innovations in various UI Health Care clinics in one day-long event for area clinicians interested in the latest in diabetes and obesity management.

Each year since, may have made the journey either physically or virtually to benefit from the expertise on hand at the University of Iowa. Under the direction of Yumi Imai, MD, and Marcelo Correia, MD, PhD, the Advances in Diabetes and Obesity Management presented attendees with updates in knowledge about a broad array of topics from medication to nutrition to combatting stigma around weight. In addition, a keynote from visiting lecturer Joseph Aloi, MD, focused on the effectiveness of continuous glucose monitors and insulated pumps.
