THE DIABETES EPIDEMIC: The Latest on Treatment and Prevention
Presented jointly with HuffPost

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Noon-1pm ET
ForumHSPH.org

Despite decades of research and relentless messaging about the importance of diet and exercise, Type 2 diabetes remains a major threat to the lives of millions of Americans. As new diagnoses in some populations plateau, rates in others groups, including African Americans and Latinos, are increasing. Why does this largely preventable condition persist? What are the latest treatments available for individuals living with diabetes? And what technological and medical breakthroughs lie on the horizon? In this Forum, experts in medical innovation, food policy, diabetes and obesity research, and community outreach will assess the promise of new approaches to diabetes, as well as explore remaining challenges.
