Video: What’s new in diabetes prevention and treatment
Join The Royal Gazette’s live video partner the Washington Post today at 1pm on www.royalgazette.com for a special programme on diabetes - one of the most common chronic diseases in the US and Bermuda.
Diabetes is a public health emergency that has only grown more urgent during the pandemic as the medical community works to understand the link between COVID-19 and new diabetes cases.
While game-changing technology is being deployed against the disease, many people lack access to these innovations or even more basic treatment options.
At 1pm , medical experts will explore the state of diabetes care in America, the little-understood link between the COVID-19 virus and diabetes, the high cost of insulin, and the most promising solutions for getting diabetes treatment to all those who need it.
Join Aaron Neinstein, MD, associate professor of medicine and director of the Center for Digital Health Innovation at UCSF, Rita Rastogi Kalyani, MD, MHS, editor in chief of the Johns Hopkins Diabetes Guide, and Jennifer Raymond, MD, clinical diabetes director at the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for a lively and informative discussion on this debilitating disease.
