Diabetes Care: a Holistic Approach is certainly one of the most advanced educational workshops for endocrinology fellowships in Iran and is held annually by Gabric Diabetes
Education Association with the scientific support of major medical universities and faculties of Tehran.
This year’s workshop that took place in February 20th, hosted 30 endocrinology fellowships (both adult and pediatric) in Eskan hotel, Tehran. The 6 hour program converged 6
hot topics in the field of diabetes management, including SMBG, insulin injection, carbohydrate counting, CGM, etc. with the help of Tehran’s key endocrinologists, aiming to
empower young fellowships in a practical case-based workshop.
Dr. Esteghamati, Dr. Hosseinpanah, Dr. Jahed, Dr. Saneifard and Dr. Aghaei were the high ranking mentors who took part in this gathering, sharing their ideas and views on various matters, specially the advanced Continues Glucose Monitoring (CGM) technologies that are believed to play a significant role in the management of people with diabetes in the near future.
A unique aspect of this year’s program was the focus on practicality rather than just theory, an aspect that led to the experiment of SMBG by every individual and helped convey the burden inflicted on people with diabetes. This event was sponsored by Farir Asa Teb, which provided us with the opportunity to influence key opinion leaders in the field of diabetes and present world’s highest standard diabetes care concepts in diabetes self-care management.
