You are invited to the 2008 Winter Meeting of the St. Louis Diabetes Coalition on Wed, Jan 30, 5:30 – 7:30 PM. Please register. The meeting will feature a presentation called Getting to Goal with Self-care Tools by Rahul Singal, MD, President/CEO of WorldDoc. His talk about how new technology and behavior change theory are coming together to change diabetes care outcomes will be fascinating. The meeting will take place at the Chesterfield Doubletree Hotel. Since our usual meeting location (Hilton Frontenac) seemed to be a horrible location given the Highway 40 shutdown, we elected to head further West. We hope you are able to attend this event and give a warm welcome to Dr. Singal who will be traveling from the desert gaming city of Las Vegas. (Side note: Dr. Singal trained at WashU). Diabetes Coalition meetings are a great way to meet colleagues from across the health care system who are involved in diabetes prevention and management. A special thanks goes out to Merck for their sponsorship of the meeting venue, etc.
