In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the University of Toronto’s discovery of insulin. Lectures will start online in January 2021, with opportunities for trainees and all colleagues to submit Abstracts/Virtual electronic posters.

The Scientific Symposium will provide comprehensive updates on the latest advances in diabetes treatment and management through a series of online educational sessions and live, online, panel discussions with the experts. Educational sessions will include the latest information on the management of diabetes and its complications, practical tips and proven strategies for improving patient care, and translation of the latest diabetes research into clinical practice. These sessions will be recorded for posterity and retained on the Scientific Symposium website as an educational repository for long term access referencing. In keeping with the spirit of Banting and Best, who sold the American patents for insulin to the University of Toronto for $1.00 each, the symposium materials will be complimentary.
