80 Million Americans Can Benefit from New Diabetes Resource : Free Educational Website Created by UCSF Diabetes Teaching Center Goes Live
Date:8/11/2008

For the newly diagnosed, this website can help individuals understand diabetes, and facilitate the necessary lifestyle changes to manage their care. For those already living with diabetes, this program provides training in the latest advances in self-care and problem-solving skills.
