Event description
TYPE 2 DIABETES - THE NEW EPIDEMIC! Who is at risk and why? (It could very well be you!)

About this Event

In the U.S. today,

  • More than 30 million people have diabetes
  • 84 million people have pre-diabetes (and 9 out of 10 don't know it!)

Who is at risk and why? Are you one of them? Find out what you need to know about diabetes and its prevention BEFORE you become one of these statistics.

Our speakers:

  • Ken Henriksen is an administrator in the Improving Health Outcomes area at the American Medical Association working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on a national initiative to increase awareness among physicians and clinical care teams on how to treat patients with prediabetes - where patients progress to having type 2 diabetes.
  • Roxanne Finegan is a registered nurse and certified diabetes educator at Amita Health - Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago. She works in both inpatient and outpatient areas of the hospital with patients to address diabetes self management and diabetes prevention.
