Physicians are invited to attend a free dinner meeting, "Effective Strategies for Reducing Patients' Diabetes Risk," Thursday, June 29, 2017, from 6-8 p.m., at the San Diego County Medical Society.

13 million California adults—nearly half of the state’s adult population—have prediabetes, increasing their risk of developing type 2 diabetes over the next few years. One out of every three Californians between the ages of 18 and 39 is estimated to have prediabetes. With the clinical burden of diabetes on the rise, physicians should be armed with evidence-based solutions to prevent the onset of diabetes in high-risk patients.

Join the California Medical Association and Champions for Health for an educational session on the clinical practice burden and trends in prediabetes and diabetes; the evidence that supports systematically screening patients and establishing a referral process to a community based program, like the National Diabetes Prevention Program; and outreach strategies employed by clinicians to reach priority, high-risk patient populations.

Attendees can earn 1 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM.

Please RSVP to liz.brave@championsfh.org by June 27.

The California Medical Association/Institute for Medical Quality (CMA/IMQ) is accredited by the Accreditation Council on Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

CMA/IMQ designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
