From A to Gen Z
Emerging young adults present clinically with a unique set of challenges. Between the many milestones during this time such as dating, driving, exposure to alcohol, coupled with the 24/7 attention diabetes requires, it is the perfect storm for the potential of out of range blood sugars. Are clinicians ready and equipped to listen to their needs and approach the issues of Gen Z?
Join CDN and ADA on October 27 at 8pm EST o dig deeper into Gen Z patients living with diabetes.
The welcome keynote will be by Dr. Robert Gabbay, Chief Science & Medical
Officer. The one-hour panel discussion will feature a diverse group of four young adults living with diabetes, along with young adult transition clinical expert Dr. Grazia Aleppo.
