Cruising With the King of Low Carb and Diabetes

Dr. Richard Bernstein

| Oct 21, 2007

On most cruises, a low-carb diet is the last thing on people's minds. In fact, stuffing yourself 24/7 is pretty much the order of the day.

If that doesn't appeal to you, however, and if you're a diabetes healthcare professional who's always wanted to consult with Dr. Richard Bernstein, now's your chance. A nine-day round trip conference cruise to the Eastern Caribbean is scheduled to leave from New York City on March 7, 2008, and Dr. Bernstein will be on board.

Dr. Bernstein, who's had type 1 diabetes for over sixty years, is an iconoclast who's become an icon in the diabetes world. The first person with diabetes to ever monitor his own blood sugar, he has been breaking new ground ever since. Best known for championing a low-carb diet, he has published two books, The Diabetes Solution and The Diabetes Diet, in which he details his controversial program for blood sugar normalization.

This expedition is a rare chance to get up close and personal with a man who's changed the world of diabetes. On the cruise, you'll be able to discuss your most difficult cases with Dr. Bernstein, bringing the fruits of his years of research home to your practice.

Not only that, but you'll garner twenty hours of continuing medical education (CME), all the while enjoying a luxury ship that offers restaurants and bars, a casino, sporting venues, and all the other standard amenities of Caribbean cruising.

Rooms cost from $1440 to $3640 for two people. For more information, go to or email an inquiry to
