Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018 Rising Stars program in Berlin, Germany!

The 10-year anniversary theme will be carried out throughout the day’s scientific program as well as the evening program and dinner. I am glad you will be there to enjoy the festivities!

The scientific program agenda includes topics such as “Diabetes Management through the Decade”:

  • Focus on Glucose
  • Focus on Guidelines

….and much more!

IDC is thrilled to bring you a faculty that includes world experts on these stimulating topics. See the detailed program agenda and faculty list on this website.
