  • More importantly, some residents cited financial reasons as barriers to being able to maintain their recommended diabetes treatment regimen.

    • More than one in 10 admit to limiting supplies, skipping doctors visits and taking medications less often to reduce costs associated with management of their diabetes

Pre-registration for the conference is recommended and is $25 per person. On-site regist
