Event reminder: Changing the way we treat diabetes and its complications, CCS Public Lecture

Professor Cooper in the new Department of Diabetes
The CCS Public Lecture on diabetes and its complications, presented by Professor Mark Cooper AO, is coming up shortly on Thursday October 19.

Diabetes has become arguably the largest worldwide epidemic. Despite this, very little has changed in the treatment of diabetes since the discovery of Insulin 90 years ago. In the past 10 years, however, new treatments for type 2 diabetes have come to light.

Hear Professor Mark Cooper AO, head of the new Monash Department of Diabetes, discuss these new treatments. He will present on the advances these new therapeutics have made in reducing some of the most important complications associated with diabetes including heart and kidney disease. Professor Cooper will also emphasise the potential benefits these treatments could yield in reducing mortality and disease burden.

This is a free public lecture and is open to all. Please see more information here and make sure to RSVP to register your attendance.
