After eight years of focusing on patient advocacy, awareness and our healthcare provider education series, and in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of our first online support group, we embark on our biggest venture yet. DBH welcomes you to the First International Conference on Diabetes and Eating Disorders, November 9-11, 2018, in New Orleans, Louisiana. We are bringing together the world’s foremost experts in the field to provide education and inspiration in a two track event – one for professionals and one for patients. For patients, the conference will offer a unique opportunity to come together in a warm, supportive environment to learn and talk with peers and experts about the things no one else understands. For professionals, the conference will arm you with the knowledge and tools of prevention, recognition, treatment and recovery.
