Touro Provides National Speakers for Clinically Focused Diabetes Conference

(Vallejo, CA – October 3, 2016) – National diabetes speakers will headline Touro University California’s inaugural diabetes conference in November, offering practical tools and strategies to effectively manage patients with diabetes.

“Diabetes: High Impact Management for Clinicians,” is a one-day event featuring Richard Aguilar, M.D., Executive Medical Director at Cano Health; Eden Miller, D.O., Family Practice at High Lakes Health Care; and Jay Shubrook, D.O., Professor at Touro University California (TUC), College of Osteopathic Medicine.

“Diabetes is getting harder, not easier, to manage, despite so many new medications to treat it,” said Shubrook. “We would like to be the go-to source for professional clinical education in regards to diabetes management.”

As a part of this pursuit, TUC is providing high quality, low cost clinical Continuing Medical Education (CME) to help address diabetes management, one of the biggest public health crisis facing the United States today.

“The goal of this one-day program is to give providers tools that they can use in their practice to be more efficient in the care of people with diabetes,” Shubrook added.

The conference will be held on November 6, 2016 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Touro University California, Lander Hall 160, 1557 Azuar Drive on Mare Island in Vallejo. Speakers will hit important topics including new drugs and insulin; working with challenging patient populations; evidence-based nutritional advice for people with diabetes, and helping patients with long term adherence, to name a few.

AMA PRA and AOA 1-A credits will be available.

The conference includes continental breakfast, lunch, and materials via USB drives. Cost for attendance is $125.
