ADA 68th Scientific Sessions

The American Diabetes Association's 68th Scientific Sessions are coming up. They begin this Friday, June 6th and run until Tuesday, June 10th. San Francisco hosts the conference this year.

Some background:
"The Scientific Sessions are held in June each year and provide an opportunity for members of the diabetes community from around the world to participate in the largest annual research and clinical meeting on diabetes. Sessions focus on the latest information in the areas of basic and clinical research and on the application of this information to clinical practice. The program includes symposia, oral and poster abstract presentations, interactive workshops, poster discussions, and other small group learning sessions."
