Date:3/11/2009

HONOLULU, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) conference and health fair will be held April 4, 2009 at the Hawaii Convention Center, bringing national and local medical experts in diabetes care to people with all types of diabetes, those at risk for diabetes, and their loved ones for a day of highly informative and motivational programs.

Leading specialists will discuss practical advice and developments in the treatment of diabetes, the complications of the disease, psychological barriers to controlling diabetes, prevention, nutritional issues and much more. Health professionals from the University of Hawaii, Kaiser Permanente, Hawaii Medical Center, Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, American Diabetes Association and Hawaii Association of Diabetes Educators have partnered with TCOYD to present the 10th Annual Taking Control of Your Diabetes event.

TCOYD participants can hear lectures, participate in screenings, and speak one-on-one with diabetes specialists including physicians, pharmacists, dieticians, certified diabetes educators and podiatrists.

A health fair with 35 informational exhibits from national and local diabetes-related companies and organizations will be open throughout the day. A banquet lunch is included and will feature special guest speaker Billy Mills Wilkins, 10,000 meter Olympic gold medalist of the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, who will share his inspiring story of living well with diabetes.

"With strong genetic and lifestyle influences, diabetes affects more and more locals. This conference and health fair is a great way to learn as much as you possibly can in one day and in one location from a variety of diabetes experts. TCOYD educates, motivates and empowers individuals and families living with diabetes to take control of their diabetes," said Honolulu-based endocrinologist and conference co-director Laurie Tom, MD.

Pre-registration is recommended and financial aid is available for those who need assistance. Early registration fees are $25 per person, before March 31. Registration fee includes lunch, healthy snacks, and all conference activities and materials. FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE BY CALLING TCOYD. Onsite registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and costs $30.

TCOYD founder and director Steven Edelman, MD, an internationally recognized leader in diabetes treatment, research and education, who has lived with diabetes for 37 years, says "Diabetes is demanding and people's daily decisions have an immediate impact on their health. At the same time, information about living with diabetes is complex. Education is critical to staying on top of this disease."
