​​​​    Sweet Success Express 2017:
         21st Annual National Research Conference 
​Motivate to Prevent
    November 2-4, 2017
Anaheim, California

​Course Description:
​Motivate to Prevent
SSEP envisions a health-oriented society in which evidenced-based management interventions and
policies are continuously applied to improve the short and longterm health and well-being for women with
diabetes during pregnancy and their off spring. We are excited to host this conference which
provides a unique opportunity to advance this vision.

Expert speakers will present a method for motivating change as well as evidence-based preventive interventions
across the life stages, particularly in high risk demographics. The interventions target women at highest risk
to develop diabetes during pregnancy or later in life, particularly indigenous populations, culturally and
linguistically diverse communities and economically disadvantaged groups.

National and International speakers will address current published and unpublished research and address
controversial topics in keeping with the program theme.  The program will address concepts of prevention, intervention,
self-management education and treatment modalities. The expanded specialty field of diabetes and reproductive health

includes the future health of both mothers and off spring with the focus on efforts to prevent future obesity and type 2
diabetes for both.  Additionally, opportunities will be provided to network and collaborate with experts and peers.

This event is not only a chance to get together and challenge each other on what works and what doesn’t
in prevention, but it is a fantastic opportunity to recognize shared priorities in diabetes
and reproductive health management.
