At the same time, they carry out all type of activities to prevent and treat the different types of diabetes, and serves as a link for professionals specialized in the field.
Technology is essential to all steps of this partnership, so it is truly important to have a portal where diabetes experts can communicate, learn and stay up-to-date on the latest research, share events and news.
