Dear colleagues, 

This is an invitation to a meeting in southern Sweden this summer Aug 31st and Sept 1st on precision medicine in type 2 diabetes and CVD
www red DiabetiologNytt
We have put together an outstanding programme, which I believe will be of high interest to you. This will be a 2-day, single-track meeting of around 200 speakers and delegates and promises to be a great platform for discussion and future collaboration.
Please consider signing-up and encouraging your colleagues and fellows to do the same. 
With best wishes,
Paul Franks and Peter M Nilsson
