February update from the BDI
It is a warm and sunny February here at BDI world headquarters in San Diego. And our condolences to all of you living in much colder climes right now. Dr. Polonsky has recently returned from presenting at the TCOYD (Taking Control of Your Diabetes) event in Anchorage (BRR!) and at the American Diabetes Association’s 65th Advanced Postgraduate Course in San Francisco. Later this month, we will be traveling to the ATTD (Advanced Technologies and Treatments) 11th International Conference in Vienna and to the annual BRIDGE meeting (Behavioral Research in Diabetes Group Exchange) in Palm Springs, so we hope to have interesting things to report at our next update.
We are wrapping up several new interesting publications, preparing for our next case consultation meeting (for mental health professionals) in March, completing our final planning for our new video CME series for healthcare professionals, and deciding on dates for our next live CME programs for healthcare professionals during Fall 2018. Stay tuned for lots more details in March!
