Welcome to the June 2020 issue of MDiabetes Dialogue!

The American Diabetes Association has transformed this year’s Scientific Sessions from a live, in-person meeting to a virtual experience. A number of University of Michigan diabetes, obesity, metabolism, and complications community members will be presenting, highlighting some of the latest, cutting-edge advances in diabetes research, prevention, and care.

All sessions will be released during their original scheduled times. Afterwards, they will be available to view at any time. In addition, all registered attendees will receive unlimited access to all virtual content for 90 days after the meeting.

The full ADA Scientific Sessions schedule can be found here .
