Building on the success of the 2016 EndoCares program in Peru, the program will be hosted in Peru, Argentina, and Brazil in 2017.
EndoCares: Diabetes was achieved through strategic partnerships with Sociedad Peruana de Endocrinologia, Asociación de Diabetes del Perú, and Liga Peruana de Lucha Contra la Diabetes. Through EndoCares 2016, participants learned skills to help them thrive, manage their diabetes, strengthen their relationship with healthcare providers, and how to develop effective teamwork with their caregiver. Together, EndoCares: Diabetes reached more than 1,000 healthcare providers, approximately 500 patients with type 2 diabetes, 100 patients with type 1 diabetes, and key government officials in charge of healthcare policy.
EndoCares also enables Society members from around the world to engage in peer-to-peer learning experiences that result in enhanced understanding of treating diabetes patients and building bridges between global medical professionals.
Society members can get involved in the program as volunteers at the international events, as educators building training programs, or as sponsors donating through the EndoCares Fund.
