There’s no annual theme which I think is part of the appeal. There’s something of relevance to just about everyone: cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, athletic performance, pregnancy, etc. For me, one of the more fascinating presentations last year was on Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome despite the fact my time has passed, but I found the info was very interesting.
There’s nothing like being at the conference in person, hearing the presentations, having the opportunity to ask a question during the Q&A sessions, possibly getting some one-on-one time with one of the presenters, meeting and exchanging ideas/info with other attendees, reading the posters, sampling the wares of the sponsors, and skiing with some of the presenters/attendees after the conference.
But I recognize there is a cost factor. I would enjoy meeting you, so let me know if you can come, even for just one day, but there are options. One would be the live-stream option which is usually offered for a reasonable price. You can watch the presentations as they are presented or watch the unedited videos which are made available for a few weeks after the conference.
Even cheaper, as in FREE, is to wait for the presentations to show up on the internet. This takes a little time because the conference partners with https://www.dietdoctor.com/
and they get first dibs to present the videos behind their paywall since they tape and edit them. The videos are released for free watching one at a time about a week apart. If there’s a particular talk you’re interested in, it might show up early or after many weeks.
There are two options to watch the videos for free on the internet. The conference is co-organized by Dr Jeffry Gerber known as “Denver’s Diet Doctor” he’s also co-author of the book, “Eat Rich, Live Long.” Dr Gerber’s website holds all the videos from past conferences https://denversdietdoctor.com/category/ ... nferences/
and what’s nice about accessing the videos here is that a PDF of the slides is also available.
The other option is http://www.youtube.com
on the Low Carb Down Under channel. The other co-organizer of this conference is an Australian doctor, Dr Rod Taylor. He also sponsors conferences in his country, thus Low Carb Down Under channel. He helps the conference here in Colorado because he enjoys the opportunity to go skiing here.
What’s nice about accessing the videos on You Tube is that an auto-generated transcript is an option under the three dots. It can sometimes be helpful to follow along with the transcript, although the auto-generation does result in odd translations occasionally.
