Diabetes affect more than 30 million Americans every year in the United States. Health centers are often one of the main ways many patients access primary care and for diabetic patients, they are often the only way to get screened and treated for diabetes. With Type I and Type II diabetes on the rise, many health centers struggle to properly diagnose patients of all ages with diabetes. There are many challenges that are specific to each age group in terms of what risk factors to look out for, best practices for screening, and approaches for treatment and care management. Join us for the third webinar in the continuation of our Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series focusing specifically on diabetes and those affected by it.
This webinar will explore diabetes prevention and strategies across the lifespan. Presenters will discuss standards of care in the screening and prevention for children, adults, and the elderly, sharing experiences from the field. Presenters will also engage participants around case examples of successful diabetes prevention programs along with pediatric, adult, and geriatric guidelines for prevention and screening. Finally presenters will connect participants with resources to outreach opportunities and tools they can apply and adapt for their own health centers.
This series is pending accreditation by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) through Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN). This series is also accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) through MCN. In order to receive continuing education units an evaluation will need to be submitted for each session. Please allow up to two weeks for continuing nursing certificates to be awarded and up to one month for continuing medical education certificates, as stated above approval through AAFP is pending.
