ADCES Annual Conference

Save the date for virtual ADCES21 on Thursday, August 12 – Sunday, August 15, 2021.

After careful consideration, we have decided to hold ADCES21 completely virtual from Thursday, August 12 to Sunday, August 15. Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of attendees, exhibitors, staff and vendors. 

All sessions will be recorded and available to access on-demand through Monday, November 8, 2021. We will miss seeing our fellow diabetes care and education specialists, friends and partners together in Phoenix, but we believe this decision is in the best interest of our collective communities.  

Registration opens in April so please visit our conference site for the latest updates.
