New Ways to Think About Type 1 Diabetes
The other night I was able to listen to Irl Hirsch MD give a presentation on "New Ways to Think About Type 1 Diabetes"... He was full of knowledge & fairly easy to understand. The group in attendance was diverse- nurses, doctors, parents of children with Type 1 Diabetes, people with Type 1 Diabetes, spouses of people of Type 1 Diabetes... you get the picture...
Although he had a fancy slide show that went along with his presentation there weren't any handouts. I tried to take notes as he spoke and wanted to share (what I felt) were his main points.
