Started in 2015 as the Naples Diabetes Conference, the von Arx Family Foundation Southwest Florida Diabetes & Wellness Conference has grown to serve the Southwest Florida community and attracts presenters and attendees from around the country. The event is a combination of public and professional education and networking. Topics and speakers include both T1 and T2 diabetes as well as sessions for medical professionals seeking CME credits.
