Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series
November 29, 2017
11:00-12:00 p.m. PST / 2:00PM-3:00 p.m. EST
Diabetes affects more than 30 million people in the United States. Multi-tiered efforts to prevent, treat and manage diabetes are critical in reducing the burden of diabetes, particularly for medically underserved racial and ethnic minority populations. In addition to higher prevalence, ethnic and racial minority patients with diabetes have higher mortality and higher rates of diabetic complications.
Join us for this kick off webinar of Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations, a national learning series on effective strategies to prevent, treat, and manage diabetes among special and vulnerable health center program patients. This session will explore important lessons learned from the National Diabetes Collaborative which made impressive gains in improving diabetes care for the most vulnerable. Faculty will discuss how to incorporate some of the most important lessons of the collaborative into current efforts to diagnose, treat and manage diabetes most effectively.
