Rating: 4.8/5

CME/CPD: 1 Credit

Duration: 1 hour

About this course

Diabetes Technology is increasingly used in diabetes management and research suggests that using this technology for the management of diabetes produces favorable results.  But the technology has to be accessible, and that is not always the case.

In this online course we look at the situation in the USA and India, and ask the questions – what are the challenges for people with diabetes in accessing the technology, and what can the global community learn from each other?
