Making the Link Between Diabetes and Cardiac Health


Monday, November 23, 2015, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET.

Many people with diabetes do not realize that having diabetes increases their chances of having a heart attack or stroke. Research has shown that people with diabetes can lower their risk for heart disease and other heart problems by managing the ABC’s of diabetes—A1c, blood pressure, cholesterol—and not smoking. Join us to hear insights from Pamela Allweiss, MD, MPH, Medical Officer, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Diabetes Translation, to help us better understand the links between diabetes and heart health.
