We are creating a multi-part podcast series that explores the essential aspects of understanding and managing one’s diabetes. Each episode will feature an expert who supports patients in different parts of treatment (Primary Care Physician, Endocrinologist, Nutritionist, Psychologist, Diabetes Nurse Educator, etc.) discussing all things diabetes. These podcasts will also include conversations with real people living with diabetes, sharing their personal stories of challenge/hope/success in taking charge of their condition. We presume each episode is approximately 30 minutes in length (or less).

The basic message of every episode is that, while a diagnosis of diabetes or pre-diabetes is serious, there is a lot you can do to help take control of your condition and limit its impact on your overall quality of life. The first step to taking such control is to get as smart as you can as quickly as you can on all things diabetes. This series helps you do just that.Examples of Learning Objectives:

  • Explain Type 2 diabetes.
