Over 20 Years of Advancing Diabetes Care
Special thanks to all of our speakers, exhibitors and participants who attended this year's conference in Fairmont on October 25-26, 2018.
The 22nd Annual Montana Diabetes Professional Conference will be held at October 3-4, 2019 at the Delta Hotels by Marriott (formally the Radisson Colonial) in Helena, MT. Watch for the upcoming 2019 Brochure and make sure to register early for this exciting & informative conference that provides annual state-of-the art training for healthcare professionals in diabetes prevention, education, and clinical care. The sessions are lecture-based with question and answer periods and promises networking opportunities throughout.
The content is targeted toward nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physicians (including internists, endocrinologists, pediatricians, and family physicians), and other health care professionals. Continuing education credits will be available.
What Others are Saying
“This conference is not only an excellent way to stay abreast of the newest information on diabetes management, but also serves as a time to network with colleagues and experts to address some of the unique challenges of providing diabetes care within Montana,” said DPHHS Medical Officer Greg Holzman, a member of the conference planning committee.
“The way we talk to and about people with diabetes matters,” explains keynote speaker Jane Dickinson, RN, PhD, CDE of Fort Collins, CO. “Words create context and people shape meaning from what they hear and read. Words and messages can build people up or break them down. In diabetes care and education, we have an opportunity to become aware of the negative, judgmental language that has been used for decades. We can then make a change toward using strengths-based, person-centered, and empowering language.”
