January 29, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Diabetes affect more than 30 million Americans in the United States. One of the main challenges is many health centers struggle to properly diagnosed patients with diabetes. Join us today for the third webinar in the continuation of our Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Population: A National Learning Series focusing specifically on diabetes and those affected by it.
This webinar will explore diabetes prevention and care strategies across the lifespan. Presenters will discuss standards of care in the screening and prevention for children, adults, and the elderly, sharing experiences from the field. Presenters will also engage participants around case examples of successful diabetes prevention programs, adult clinical treatment, and geriatrics care focused on vulnerable populations of children and adults of all ages. Presenters will connect participant with resources to outreach opportunities and tools they can apply and adapt for their own health centers.
