MAKING THE CONNECTION
DEEP DIVE SERIES:
CGM, Pumps and Hybrid Closed Loop Systems
An Online Continuing Medical Education Activity
SEPTEMBER 23, 2021 | 4:00PM PT
The technology now available for patients with type 1 diabetes has made a huge impact on diabetes management and will bridge the gap until a cure comes along. Effective use of continuous glucose monitors, insulin pumps, and smart pens is the standard of care for T1D patients. Marrying them together to create hybrid and fully-closed loop systems is happening here and now and we’re taking a deep dive into what you need to know.
This is a 1.5-hour VIRTUAL interactive program, please see the full accreditation information here.
