Description

Wednesday, September 20th 2017 – 7:45 am-10:00 am

2-hours of CME credit will be available for attendees of this event! *

Over 30 million Americans (9.4% of the U.S. population) have diabetes. Another 84 million have prediabetes, which if not treated often leads to type 2 diabetes within 5 years. Diabetes was the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S. in 2015. Now, more than ever, we must step up our efforts to reduce the burden of this serious disease.

Join Dr. Andrew Ahmann, Director of OHSU's Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center, and Adventist Health Diabetologist Dr. Leonard Bertheau, as they present new and impactful best-practice guidelines to effectively treating this challenging disease state.

2-hours of CME credit will be available for attendees of this event! *

This workshop is FREE and includes continental breakfast.

CareOregon’s pharmacy team hosts this ongoing examination of disease states that:

• Highly impact patient quality of life

• Require complex management

• May lead to increased ED and hospital visits

Attendees gain valuable tools and insights, exploring different elements of patient medication risk, improving their ability to contribute as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

Attendance is limited, so please RSVP by September 8th.
