Health Chats: Diabetes 101
September 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join WSU professors Josh Neumiller and Cheyenne Newsome for a panel discussion on national trends in diabetes, what causes this chronic condition, and strategies for diabetes prevention. The two will also discuss their work related to diabetes care and the important roles that pharmacists can play in improving diabetes outcomes – including medication management and lifestyle education. Audience members will also have a chance to ask panelists questions at the end of the discussion. This will be an educational event for the community, and we hope anyone interested in science, health or diabetes can join!
