On-Demand Webinar Explores Patient-Provider Relationships


In the century since the discovery of insulin transformed diabetes from a fatal to a chronic, treatable condition, strong relationships and communication between patients and providers have become more important than ever.

During the Society’s new 100 Years of Insulin on-demand webinar, member Grazia Aleppo, MD, and two people with diabetes discuss how care has evolved and the role patient-provider ties play in ensuring individuals receive the highest quality care. 

The panel, moderated by Endocrine News Editor Mark A. Newman, features: 

  • Dr. Grazia Aleppo from Northwestern University 
  • Marguerite Brunner, a patient of Dr. Aleppo’s who has lived well with diabetes for 57 years  
  • Evan Strat, a student at Georgia Tech who’s had type 1 diabetes for 11 years 

View the on-demand webinar now and learn more about our upcoming events celebrating 100 Years of Insulin. 

Pose your questions to Dr. Aleppo live during our question-and-answer session at noon Eastern on Monday, Aug. 16. Be part of the ongoing discussion in our members-only discussion platform, Community Connect.
