November is National Diabetes Month and PlatformQ Health is excited to support the awareness and empowerment of patients and caregivers managing diabetes by providing them with interactive education.
National Diabetes Month is a time when communities across the country team up to bring attention to diabetes and its impact on millions of Americans. PlatformQ Health has produced dozens of diabetes education programs for clinicians on DiabetesSeriesLive, and through an expanded partnership with Joslin Diabetes Center, diabetes education programs were developed specifically for patients and caregivers, on diabetic retinopathy and to help them understand the new, long-acting insulins in an educational event titled New Long-acting Insulins for the Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes: Patient Perspectives. The long-acting insulins program focused on how Type 2 diabetes can change over time, how different insulins work, and when a long-acting option might be a good choice. Check out this quick clip from the program:
