Diabetes and its comorbidities are highly preventable and treatable. Yet there are multiple challenges in translating evidence to practice which involve capacity building, behavioral changes and strengthening of our health care systems in order to bring out the best of our clinical expertise and technology. In this annual forum, we have invited thought leaders to share their experiences and expertise in pursuit of these complex goals. Through these deliberations and interactions, we hope to build a network of care professionals and experts who share similar vision to innovate and transform health promotion and disease prevention.
