WHO WE ARE

The Greater Pittsburgh Diabetes Club (GPDC) is a group of multidisciplinary clinicians who have a special interest in diabetes. We provide a venue for non-biased specialty level educational programs, networking, and social interaction.

Members of the GPDC are residents of the Greater Pittsburgh / Southwestern Pennsylvania area who are actively engaged in diabetes research, the teaching of diabetes care, and/or the practice of endocrinology.  Membership to the GPDC is open to Adult and Pediatric endocrinologists (MDs and DOs), NPs, PAs who specialize in endocrine and/or diabetes care; Pharmacists, Dietitians, Nurses who specialize in endocrine and/or diabetes care; and other clinical health professionals with a special interest in diabetes.  In addition, fellows in the field of endocrinology and metabolism are members, free from dues.

The Club hosts two dinner programs per year with  CME and CEU credit offerings.  A deep discount (complimentary at times) to attend each program is offered to members.  The meetings also serve to network with colleagues and friends in a social setting.  Your input and participation are encouraged.

We welcome new members!  Dues are $25/year. Anyone interested in joining the Greater Pittsburgh Diabetes Club or attending a program should contact Nadine Popovich at 412-321-5030 or email npopovich@acms.org.
