Online Education | Diabetes Update 2015
Regardless of the practice setting, most clinicians are involved in managing care for patients with diabetes. Staying abreast of the latest research and treatment strategies for glycemic control is essential for helping patients achieve maximum health and avoid complications.

"Excellent topics this year. Totally relevant for my clinical practice."
