DPC Founder Maggie Meer said: “We’re all aware of how challenging the current situation is, but type 2 diabetes education is still needed especially in the middle of a pandemic. During these unprecedented times when face-to-face contact is restricted, we wanted to find a way we could deliver vital content from some of the nation’s key opinion leaders in diabetes.

“We hope all virtual attendees find the content engaging, relevant and valuable and we would like to thank all our contributors for their time so we could make these online workshops happen.”
