Diabetes is one of the largest epidemics in human history. Based on the International Diabetes Foundation (IDF Alas 10th Edition), there are 537 million adults living with diabetes (10%) with a prediction to rise to 783 million by 2045. Diabetes is responsible for 6.7 million deaths in 2021 (1 every 5 seconds). It caused at least $966 billion in health expenditure — a 316% increase over the last 15 years. However, technology-enabled solutions to address diabetes are being created.

Join this webinar to learn about technology-enabled solutions to address the diabetes epidemic. Discussions regarding innovation that support early detection and prevention for the impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) population and the undiagnosed. Discover innovative solutions such as sensors, delivery and drugs for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) adults. Also, learn about the impact of new innovative paradigms on diagnosis, treatments and prevention of diabetes and its impact on people with diabetes (PWD).

The featured speakers will review the current state and future state of technologies that will enable better outcomes for diabetes.
