Project ECHO Diabetes Webinar | Diabetes Disparities in the Time of COVID-19

This webinar will address the urgent needs of patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes who require complex diabetes treatment in the primary care setting in the time of COVID-19 by empowering and increasing the capacity of primary care providers (PCPs) and clinics to safely and effectively manage under-served patients who do not have access to routine specialty care. 

Led by a nationally/internationally renowned faculty team of diabetes experts (many of whom contribute to/co-author national guideline recommendations), this curriculum will spotlight various aspects of diabetes management for patients at high-risk for poor outcomes during the time of COVID-19. 


This is a free webinar series offered from 9:00 am – 10:15 am (PT) every Wednesday.  Registration is required.
