DCCT/EDIC: Answering Type 1 Diabetes Questions for Over 30 Years (Rx)

Course Description

In 1983, Jerry Palmer was a part of the group studying type 1 diabetes in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) that tested the "glucose hypothesis" and the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) study, following the DCCT subjects over 30 years. Now, three decades later, Dr. Palmer shares the lessons learned from DCCT/EDIC, and their relevance to current knowledge about type 1 diabetes.
