Diabetes Alert Day! Managing Diabetic Kidney Disease

Date Tue, Mar 23
Time 6: 00 PM - 7: 00 PM
Location Zoom

Flyer for GITVC March 23, 2021 event Join us on Diabetes Alert Day to learn why monitoring only HbA1c may not be the best for people with diabetic kidney disease. We will talk about research to assess if monitoring glucose levels with a continuous glucose monitor may be helpful. We will also talk about a research study that may help us find out if this is true. If you are interested in learning how research studies can help us find answers and questions you should ask before joining a research study, register today.
