Diabetes 101: What Every Nurse Should Know
Friday, April 26, 2013, 8:00am–12:00pm
Nearly 24 million people in the US have diabetes and the percentage of diagnosed diabetes among people 65 years and older is 10-12 times that of people younger than 45. Greater than 90% of these cases are Type II diabetes, and nearly 25% of them are undiagnosed. Join us for a workshop that will address critical diabetes basics that will enhance your ability to help people with diabetes to manage their own health safely and effectively.
