– What Works and What Does Not? 

Improved glucose control has been shown to prevent or reduce complications in people living with diabetes. Attaining this can be elusive, as the road to good blood glucose control can pose burdens to both the healthcare provider and the patient with diabetes. The top three challenges to managing diabetes include optimizing the use of current diabetes therapies, educating patients on self-management, and improving patient adherence to lifestyle and pharmacological interventions. This live webinar will provide insights from globally recognized key opinion leaders in diabetes care on how healthcare providers can address these three challenges and improve the care they provide to patients with diabetes.
