Diabetes poses a major healthcare challenge given its rising prevalence, cost, and risk of chronic complications and co-morbidities. Healthcare providers are required to address these concerns in a changing landscape of therapy and technology where treatments for diabetes continue to expand. The annual UCLA Diabetes Symposium is a full-day CME program offering providers of varying backgrounds a chance to review optimal state-of-the-art patient care. Experts in the field will review current best practices, including updates in care, guidelines, and new medication classes, as well as address co-morbidities including cardiovascular disease and obesity.

The FDA has issued a concept paper that classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manage all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. UCLA fully endorses the letter and spirit of these concepts.
