Anticoagulation-Thromboembolism Interest Group  

The Anticoagulation-Thromboembolism interest group was founded in 1988 by Rich White, MD as a way to connect SGIM members who have clinical or research interest in this topic. In 2013, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary we are moving to SGIM community. All members of SGIM are invited to join and we look forward to meeting old friends and new members at the next annual meeting. In between meetings, we look forward at leveraging the new Connect functionality to discuss clinical quandaries, share new research findings and educational opportunities.

Diabetes Interest Group  

The Diabetes Interest Group provides a forum for networking for SGIM members interested in diabetes. While there are effective preventive and treatment interventions for diabetes, many patients do not receive or benefit from these. Most diabetes care occurs in the primary care setting, the setting in which most SGIM clinicians practice, and SGIM members are positioned to address the diabetes epidemic through research, clinical care, policy change and advocacy.

The Diabetes Interest Group promotes evidence-based research and clinical care to prevent and treat diabetes. Our goals include creating collaborative opportunities across institutions to enhance the study of diabetes and its prevention, mentoring diabetes-focused researchers and clinicians, and developing educational workshops related to diabetes at regional and national meetings. Topics of interest include the epidemiology of prediabetes, diabetes, and diabetes complications especially to understand disparities; implementation of diabetes prevention programs; and improvement of diabetes care in the primary care setting.
