Hands On Webcast: 8/10/21: Downloading Data, Part 1: What Can We Really Learn from Blood Glucose Meters and Smart Pens?

Join the American Diabetes Association on Tuesday, August 10th, at 3 p.m. EDT for a live, one-hour panel discussion that is the first in a two-part series about leveraging technology-enabled data to better manage diabetes. This session will focus on glucose meters and smart pens. The session is a part of the "Hands On: Tips to Improve Diabetes Care" webinar series available exclusively to ADA members and offering CE credit.


In this webinar, speakers will discuss how to use real-time and retrospective glucose data from multiple sources to make diabetes care decisions; how to download and review data in the primary care setting for the most effective outcomes; and the purpose and potential value of “smart” insulin pens. Presenters will share five actionable tips around downloading and using glucose data before the webinar concludes with a live Q&A session.


The “Hands On: Tips to Improve Diabetes Care” series is presented by ADA’s Behavioral Medicine & Psychology, Diabetes in Primary Care, and Diabetes Technology Interest Groups through the generous support of the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
