The International Diabetes Federation estimates there are 537 million individuals with diabetes worldwide. And that’s not even counting the patients that go undiagnosed. In the US, we estimate that 1/3 of eligible patients are not screened. Even with screening, there’s a gigantic gap in prediabetes diagnosis and treatment. Those in Primary care are really at the forefront of diabetes & prediabetes care. With 11% of the adult population affected by Diabetes, every healthcare worker must become comfortable with the care and treatment of these patients.

They will cover the basics and updates over the past half a decade or so including both non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic treatment options.
