“Groundbreaking discoveries” and “interrelated epidemics” of COVID-19, type 2 diabetes, and obesity are to be discussed at an annual conference.

The diaTribe Foundation’s 7th Solvable Problems in Diabetes event is taking place on Tuesday, September 22, which happens every year the day before EASD Annual Meeting.

This year the panel features top physician-researchers from the UK. Professor Pratik Choudhary, Professor Melanie Davies CBE and Professor Kamlesh Khunti, who are all from the University of Leicester, will be joined by Professor Partha Kar, a Consultant in Diabetes and the NHS England National Specialty Advisor for Diabetes.

Organisers of the event said: “They are leading groundbreaking discoveries on the frontlines of the interrelated epidemics of COVID-19, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. We will learn what research is being presented at EASD this year and what they think the biggest issues and most exciting advancements are in diabetes right now.

The diaTribe Foundation invites you to the 7th annual Solvable Problems, has a unique focus on the newest treatment strategies, the opportunities presented by new technology and digital health tools, and the future of diabetes care.”

This year the event is to be held virtually because of safety reasons amid the pandemic and because of generous support from sponsors, it is the first time in its history that tickets are complimentary.

Attendees will be able to hear presentations and discussions from all four key speakers about their thoughts on access to technology and advances in prevention.

There will also be opportunities to hear about the type of research which will be presented at the EASD 2020 Conference and network with colleagues.
