Wolters Kluwer collaborates with American Diabetes Association to develop virtual alternative for the ADA’s 80th Scientific Sessions

Wolters Kluwer, Health, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has joined forces with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and other collaborators to develop and virtually host its 80th Scientific Sessions: A Virtual Experience from June 12 through 16.

The ADA’s annual, in-person meeting has been transformed into a fully digital experience leveraging components of the Wolters Kluwer virtual conference solution offering.

To create a fully immersive experience that delivers the same comprehensive, cutting-edge research and expertise to attendees, Wolters Kluwer delivered a solution that combines streamed presentations as well as prerecorded sessions that attendees can access on any device, at any time throughout the five day event and up to 90 days after the meeting. In total, Wolters Kluwer and the ADA worked together to turn more than 900 presentations into over 325 hours of digital content.

Attendees will also have access to eAbstracts of the latest research studies and can visit a virtual poster hall, eBookstore and virtual exhibit hall, where attendees will be able to see information and interact with pharmaceutical, medical device and other various companies in the digital environment. Additionally, CME credits can be earned after the conclusion of the event.

“We are honored to partner with the American Diabetes Association to help them achieve their vision of a virtual annual meeting that delivers on the Scientific Sessions’ 80 years of connectivity and progress in an online setting,” said Greg Samios, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer, Health Learning, Research & Practice. “Conferences are a vital mechanism for societies to connect with their members and share the latest translational research for their medical specialty. We developed a virtual meeting solution in response to the COVID-19 pandemic so societies like the ADA have the opportunity to continue to inform and engage their members and attendees in a new digital format.”

An OnDemand version with additional content will be available to anyone who missed the event.
