The DFM offers an annual patient-education meeting for health professionals, patients and their families. Past Super Conferences have featured nationally renowned diabetes experts, including former U.S. Surgeon General Rear Admiral Kenneth Moritsugu, MD, MPH, and Nicole Johnson, Miss America 1999. The meetings featured everything from diabetes vendors, cooking demonstrations, the latest news on diabetes research and a session on insulin-pump therapy to a daylong session of activities for children with diabetes.
