Overview

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.
