KIPL Power Hour: Diabetes and Patient Care during COVID-19 (5/29/2020)

Diabetes and Patient Care
More than 84 million Americans or 1 in 3 adults has prediabetes, and the majority of them don’t know they have it. Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in the US. Left undetected and untreated, the progression to diabetes will continue to place a tremendous strain on physicians, clinical practices and health care costs associated with diabetes care and management. Through the statewide initiative in North Carolina to prevent type-2 diabetes called DiabetesFreeNC, physicians and care teams have an opportunity to support their prediabetic patients with a free or low cost evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program.

Join a conversation where we will hear from Karen Smith, MD, and Brian Klausner, MD, as they share their thoughts and what actions they have taken to identify and manage their patients with prediabetes, including how they have managed referrals to various lifestyle change programs.

The weekly Power Hours are offered to you by Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership/ North Carolina Medical Society Foundation and aims to provide a forum for ongoing conversation, collaboration and community. Tune in to Power Hour on Fridays @ 1:00 PM to hear from different experts, decision makers and influencers on a variety of topics. The format is informal and conversational and sessions are easy to access through Zoom. The Power Hours will be recorded and made readily available to you through Morning Rounds.
