#dedoc° is thrilled that aside from our popular #docday° community events, we are also invited to be part of the official program of scientific diabetes conferences. Following the title "What we wish you knew – and why", we share thoughts and topics that are relevant to the diabetes community with the attendees of some of the most important diabetes conferences across the globe, such as ATTD, ISPAD and EASD. Our symposia, whether held virtually or in person, are all streamed live and freely accessible to the diabetes online community. 

Join us for our #dedoc° symposium at EASD!
