About This Webinar

Diabetes is a complicated chronic disease that requires daily medical treatment.  Due to the financial strain of purchasing diabetes management supplies, food insecurity is common among this population. This presentation provides practical ways to apply the American Diabetes Association 2023 Standards of Care in Diabetes and reviews strategies to reduce food insecurity for patients with diabetes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Comprehend and implement the 2023 diabetes standards of care within the boundaries of medical therapy.
  • Approach all patients with diabetes in an empathetic manner.
  • Identify methods to screen for and address food insecurity among patients with diabetes.
  • Utilize various tools to connect their patients with diabetes to resources that can help.

Food Security in Focus

Among our nation’s active-duty service members and their families, an estimated 24 percent are food insecure. Food insecurity adversely impacts racial/ethnic minority populations, lower-income populations, and rural and remote populations. Additionally, a rise in economic insecurity throughout the Covid-19 pandemic has contributed to increased food insecurity in vulnerable populations. Join OneOp as we focus on expanding food security for the military family and mobilizing family service professionals at federal, state, and local levels to work together on this issue.
