Course Description:

The Comprehensive Harvard Medical School Diabetes Update

The answer is rooted in three challenges:
•  Keeping pace with rapidly advancing options for diabetes care
•  Accounting for a patient’s unique biological, psychological, social, financial, educational, and cultural factors
•  Overcoming structural healthcare barriers, requiring clinical strategies to fit within a particular mold
•  This established Harvard Medical School course offers practical strategies to address these challenges and updates that ensure you can deliver state-of-the-art care for your patients with diabetes.
