Activity Description:

Despite the growing list of safe and effective therapies for individuals with T2D, many patients struggle to achieve their glucose target and thus remain at risk for significant comorbidities. Novel unimolecular dual agonists may help address these unmet needs.

What role might novel agents play, and how can endocrinologists engage with their patients to make better therapeutic choices?  To find out, and to earn continuing education credit, join us for the dinner symposium, Demystifying the Evolving Science and Potential Role of Incretins in T2D. Brought to you by Medical Learning Institute, Inc. and the Endocrine Society, this interactive symposium will be held 06 December 2022 from 17:30 – 19:30 Western European Time (WET), in Auditorium VIII at Centro de Congressos de Lisboa CCL at IDF World Diabetes Congress 2022.

During the session, experts will explain the incretin effect and the roles of GLP-1 and GIP, as well as the potential benefits of agonism of multiple receptors that affect energy homeostasis; they will also interpret the clinical implications of new and emerging data for the first-in-class dual GLP-1 and GIP agonist. Case studies will identify individuals with T2D who may benefit from earlier treatment intensification to improve overall health and delineate practical considerations to help individuals with T2D achieve optimal outcomes. Space is limited, so  REGISTER TODAY!

This CE activity is intended for endocrinologists, diabetologists, and endocrinology fellows who provide care for individuals with T2D in Europe, and those who attend IDF.

After completing this CE activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Identify individuals with T2D who may benefit from earlier treatment intensification to achieve optimal glucose control and overall health in accordance with current guidelines.
  • Integrate practical considerations, experience, and shared decision-making (SDM) techniques to help individuals with T2D achieve and maintain weight loss for optimal outcomes
  • Relate the pathophysiology of GLP-1 and GIP to the incretin effect and potential benefits of agonism of multiple receptors that affect energy homeostasis and the MOA of novel therapies
  • Interpret the clinical implications of the efficacy and safety data of novel dual agonists for T2D and their potential impact on the treatment paradigm

EACCME® Credit

The Demystifying the Evolving Science of and Potential Role of Incretins in T2D, Lisbon, Portugal, 06/12/2022-06/12/2022 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 1 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at
