What did you get out of attending Patient-Centered Diabetes Care and why should someone attend the 2016 meeting?

The idea of the conference is great, it has a nice broad spectrum and I think it covers a lot of important aspects. I also think it's very helpful to have the "patient-centered" in the title, because we spend a lot of time thinking about the financial and the clinical aspects and the studies and the technology, but really all of it is really for helping members, helping patients. So I really think it's important to keep that in mind. It's easy to lose track of that as we get lost in all of the complexities of healthcare.
