Thursday, September 10, 2015, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. PT.


Elderly patients with diabetes present unique challenges when insulin is involved, as their risk of hypoglycemic events and other adverse drug events is higher than younger patients. Hear from Andrew Geller, MD, Medical Officer of the Medication Safety Program from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who will offer the latest research and guideline information on treating older adult patients with diabetes where insulin is prescribed. For providers seeking the latest information on caring for their aging patients, this is a must-attend event.
