Come join leaders from education, politics, health professions and the general community all convening on Hampton University's beautiful waterfront campus to discuss this year's theme, "Controlling Diabetes: A Call to Action for Minority Families." We will focus on the problem of diabetes, health disparities, and diabetes management in communities. The Conference is designed to be a public health intervention aimed at accomplishing selected goals and objectives of the federal government's Healthy People 2020. Diabetes is a controllable disease with devastating consequences when uncontrolled, and we will explore the important role of families in controlling the disease and eliminating diabetic complications. We have assembled an exciting team of keynote speakers and informative workshops in order to accomplish the Conference objectives.
