Virtual conferences allow participants from across the globe to join together for innovative learning opportunities.
Diabetes continues to be a major health concern, with the number of cases rising from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. Designed to provide education on diabetes treatment so that you can lead your patients in making informed choices, the inaugural AANP Live: 2019 Diabetes Virtual Conference will feature six educational sessions all about Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Suited for advanced learners and clinicians, the detailed video sessions will present a case study of one patient with diabetes as she moves through primary and specialty care.
Explore what a comprehensive diabetes care plan is comprised of and find answers to these questions and more:
What needs to be answered at a patient’s first visit with a new primary care provider?
What does a healthy meal plan look like for someone diagnosed with diabetes?
How are pharmacologic interventions determined?
How does a patient’s weight history guide his or her treatment plan?
How is cardiovascular risk determined for someone diagnosed with diabetes?
By attending on Live Day, March 23, you’ll be able to participate in live Q&As with NP experts and discuss the day’s sessions with your fellow attendees while you earn up to six hours of CE credit—which includes 3.92 pharmacology*!
AANP would not exist without the more than NP members who join together to form The Voice of the Nurse Practitioner®. It’s a community of NPs from every specialty and practice setting, whose diverse backgrounds and experiences inform AANP’s actions each and every day.
That’s why AANP is committed to showing real NPs—and real AANP members—to the public and to policymakers. New to the 2019 AANP National Conference, you’ll have the chance to participate in this effort!
At the Indiana Convention Center, there will be a photo shoot area next to badge pick-up, which will feature several different clinical settings, an office space and multiple opportunities for professional headshots. Pack your white coat, bring a stethoscope or other small equipment and plan to represent NPs in practice. Volunteers will also be needed to portray patients, so feel free to participate twice or invite your conference guests. All participants will have access to the clinical setting photos and professional headshots taken of them during the photo shoot.
