The Weitzman ECHO Diabetes Across the Lifespan program connects primary care medical providers and clinicians to a community of peers and subject-matter experts from Ohio University to address patients’ complex health needs related to diabetes. At each session, subject-matter experts from Ohio University provided guidance from a multidisciplinary team approach to address patients’ complex health needs related to diabetes to screen, assess, treat, and manage patients with all types of diabetes. The Weitzman ECHO Diabetes Across the Lifespan is a no-cost, 12-month, 24-session program beginning October 18th, 2022 and will meet for 1-hour, 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from 12-1 pm ET.
