The Changing Burden of Diabetes in Rural and Urban America

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of the death in the U.S. However, past scholarly work suggests that the burden of disease varies considerably between residents in rural and urban settings. The purpose of this webinar, presented by Dr. Timothy Callaghan and Dr. Alva Ferdinand, is to provide an up-to-date, in-depth look at how the burden of diabetes has changed over time. In this webinar, diabetes-related mortality in and out of the hospital, complications of the disease, and progress toward Healthy People 2020 goals will be discussed.
