WHAT: Diabetes Research Update: New Focus May Lead to a New Breakthrough
"Emerging Science: Exploring the Inner Dynamics of Diabetes."

Hear directly from the physician-researchers who are diabetes news makers helping to reshape the understanding of Type 2 diabetes. Leading endocrinologists will explain the latest research in the emerging field of incretin hormones and their potential role in diabetes treatment. New therapies currently under investigation that move beyond insulin-mediated treatments to a multi dimensional approach that may alter the usual progression of Type 2 disease will be discussed. The role of glucagon in diabetes, pancreatic islet function (beta cell and alpha-cell), and insulin/glucagon balance also will be discussed.

WHEN: 12 p.m. EST, Wednesday, May 18 -- Lunch will be served
