Navigating the 2020 Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes

This webinar took place on Thursday, January 30, 3030 from 2-3:30 p.m. EST and was hosted by Becky Dorner & Associates.

Almost 10% of Americans – or over 30 million people – suffer from diabetes, and 1.5 million more are newly diagnosed every year. As the seventh leading cause of death in the US, understanding and navigating the challenges of diabetes is essential for healthcare professionals. RDs play a unique and necessary role in caring for clients with the disease, and therefore it’s imperative they stay current on the latest guidelines and practices in diabetes care.

The annually produced American Diabetes Association Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes provides benchmark guidelines for patients living with diabetes and the healthcare professionals who care for them. Kathy Warwick, RDN, CDE provides a comprehensive review of the ADA’s 2020 guidelines, developments, and opportunities for RDNs in diabetes care.
