Health Care or Self-Care? Using Technology to Manage Diabetes
Diabetes is a self-care condition and people with diabetes are responsible for taking care of their diabetes on a daily basis. This never-ending management requires ongoing education, tools, encouragement and support that the health care system simply does not have the ability to provide. This presentation will talk about the ways that technology is giving people the tools they need to manage diabetes in ways that doctors in offices cannot. Digital tools, with a human touch, can help provide information, tools and support to people with diabetes, wherever they are, whenever they need them, empowering people in their self-care.
