DIA Annual Meeting


June 27 - July 2, 2021

Virtual |


Recognizing and adapting to a new era of global change and uncertainty, DIA's key tenets remain unchanged.

Patients are our story, we seek to understand, collaboration is the skill we hone—and this collaboration must cross organizations, decades, languages, and boundaries to have a truly global impact.

The DIA 2021 Global Annual Meeting pushes beyond walls and borders. It is collaboration without boundaries, and we want you to join us and play a key role in building the framework of the future—making connections, gaining skills and insights, and advancing science to improve global health.
