Date:4/7/2009

RALEIGH, N.C., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) conference and health fair will be held May 2, 2009 at the Raleigh 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, heart disease and much more. The Taking Control of Your Diabetes conference is a collaborative effort of health professionals from major institutions and clinics including the University of North Carolina Health Care, Duke University Medicine, and Raleigh Endocrine Associates. The American Diabetes Association and North Carolina Diabetes Prevention and Control, among many other agencies and organizations, have partnered with TCOYD to present the 8th Taking Control of Your Diabetes event in Raleigh.

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

A health fair with 40 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 Urban Miyares, blinded Vietnam veteran. Presumed dead following an ambush on his platoon, Miyares was found in a diabetic coma in a body bag, and subsequently diagnosed with diabetes. Miyares has succeeded in his life and career as an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, mentor, television and film personality, and world-class athlete.
