Small Steps, Big Rewards: Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes affects more than 29 million Americans or about 9 percent of the United States population. It's also estimated that one in every four persons with diabetes is unaware that they have the disease.

Did you know that if you have a family history of diabetes, you have a greater chance of getting type 2 diabetes? That means if you have a mother, father, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes, you have a greater chance of getting the disease.

Speaker: Susan Cornell, PharmD - Midwestern University

Susan Cornell Healthcare models are evolving from an acute care (wait until it breaks) structure to a chronic care (prevent it from breaking) formation of care. The team based approach to optimal patient care requires all healthcare professionals to work at the top of their license and training.

Pharmacists have long been underutilized, especially in diabetes education, management and care. This session will review the scope and types of pharmacy practice, including community, hospital primary and specialty care, in which pharmacists educate, manage and care for people with diabetes.
