About This Event

It’s estimated that more than 34 million people in the U.S. live with some form of diabetes, and more than 7 million have not yet been diagnosed. Roughly 90 million U.S. adults have prediabetes, and every year 1.5 million more Americans receive a diagnosis.

What is diabetes? What is the difference between Types 1 and 2, and why is there an increased prevalence of Type 1? What has research taught us about other forms of diabetes, including “atypical diabetes”? If you have diabetes or just want to learn more about it, join us for a fascinating webinar with diabetes expert Dr. Irl Hirsch, Professor of Medicine, Diabetes Treatment and Teaching Chair, UW School of Medicine.

Local experts and panelist include Carol Wysham, MD, Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Specialist at MultiCare and Anneke Van Slote, ARNP, BC-ADM, Diabetes Management Nurse Practitioner at Providence Health Care.
