As diabetes persists as a leading cause of preventable deaths and life-altering complications across Texas, the Texas A&M Coastal Bend Health Education Center hosted its 13th Annual Diabetes Conference at the American Bank Center on July 21 and 22 to equip a wide spectrum of medical professionals with the latest information on improving medical care and outcomes for their patients.

 “Over the years, this annual conference has strived to provide knowledge of how to change specific lifestyle choices that are root causes of diabetes,” said Sidney Ontai, M.D., M.B.A., course director for the conference. “Changes to one’s lifestyle can improve quality of life and even reverse the toll diabetes takes on one’s body.”
