More than 13,000 top scientists, physicians and other health care professionals from around the world will share cutting-edge research, treatment recommendations and advances toward a cure for diabetes. Keep your readers, viewers and listeners informed of the advances made in fighting this disease that affects nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States and contributes to the deaths of over 230,000 Americans each year. The American Diabetes Association estimates that the total cost of diagnosed diabetes in the U.S. is over $174 billion; further published studies suggest that when additional costs for gestational diabetes, pre-diabetes, and undiagnosed diabetes are included, the total diabetes-related costs in the U.S. could exceed $218 billion.
