Hands On Webcast: 7/13/21: Racial Reckoning: Understanding Discrimination, Racism, and Health Inequities in Diabetes Care

In this webinar, speakers will discuss disparities in diabetes care—such as diabetes technology and A1c—with a focus on race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status; the role of provider bias in these disparities; and how to address these disparities through culturally competent interventions. Presenters will share five actionable tips for identifying and reducing racial/ethnic-related disparities in diabetes care 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.
