The 2015 Bay Area Diabetes Summit is just TWO days away! Amazingly, we have almost 450 people registered to attend, and we’re looking forward to welcoming each and every one. A conference with this many people requires lots of planning and resources. That’s why we are so grateful to our conference sponsors for helping us make this event possible. Conference sponsors not only help cover costs associated with food, venue, childcare, and logistics, they also provide useful information, demos, samples and other fun perks that help make the event exciting and fun.
