Diabetes Trends Information
The Diabetes Trends webcast series was adapted from a series of live programs presented in the Fall of 2018 in collaboration with the Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation (NPHF). The goal of Diabetes Trends was to foster collaboration, share best practices and provide a forum for peer-to-peer interaction among primary care physicians and advanced practice providers who are actively engaged in the clinical care of diabetes patients.

This activity was originally presented as the fourth session in the Diabetes Trends series. Find other activities from this series on our website:
