Together 2 Goal® Diabetes Symposium

Frank Colangelo, M.D., FACP Presents

Frank Colangelo, M.D., FACP, Chief Quality Officer at Premier Medical Associates, presents on addressing cardiovascular disease risk.

At the meeting, Together 2 Goal® leveraged the scientific expertise of ADA and the clinical and practical expertise of our membership to inform a dynamic discussion about advancing high performance care for patients living with Type 2 diabetes. Presentations and discussions focused on three campaign planks: cardiovascular disease risk, emotional and behavioral support, and treatment algorithms.

“This meeting brought together the best and brightest to confront challenges in diabetes care that no one organization can take on alone,” said Jerry Penso, M.D., M.B.A., president of AMGA Foundation and chief medical and quality officer of AMGA. “The dialogue and ideas generated from this meeting will improve care for millions of people.”
