Crossroads at the Centre: The Nexus Between CVD and Diabetes Symposium



This symposium will focus on the important connections between diabetes and cardiovascular disease and will feature a combination of relevant plenary presentations from renowned scientists and clinicians plus practical workshops.

The symposium will be held over a day and a half.

The first day will cover the connections and links between diabetes and cardiovascular disease, disease complications and epidemiology. The second day will cover the latest evidence on diabetes research and issues relating to maternal and child health, and factors early in life that increase the risk of obesity and diabetes in childhood and adolescence.

To ensure a patient-centred and culturally relevant approach, sessions will be included which provide a consumer/patient perspective and which discuss Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander concepts of disease and treatment.

This symposium is suitable for a broad range of health professionals, including General Practitioners, clinical specialists, nurses, hospital staff, remote health and allied health staff, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners and Health Workers.

Registration is free but essential.
