DECA’s 2020 International Diabetes Camping Conference was an exciting and informative event! Dr. Bruce Buckingham excited us when talking about emerging technologies in diabetes care. Dr. William Polonsky emboldened us to providing compassionate and supportive care to others. Eric Tozer inspired us to set and reach goals for an active and healthy life.
We were fortunate to have outstanding speakers address a multitude of topics important to diabetes camping in the areas of camper programming, medical care and organization operations.
Friends from DexcomOmnipod®, Medtronic and Tandem delivered superb training on diabetes care devices during the technology forum.
Friends from Lilly and Xeris provide timely and informative updates on their products for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia, BAQSIMI™ and Gvoke™ respectively.
