CWD's Masterpiece Product Theater (MPT) is a way for the diabetes industry and entrepreneurial community to connect with the CWD family through dedicated webinar meetings hosted by the CWD team, featuring industry partners. Held on Tuesday evenings from 7 - 8 pm ET, these discussions are an opportunity for companies and partners to hold a focus group, introduce a new product, feature a speaker from their roster, or hold a roundtable discussion on a topic of their choice.
