  • Depression and stress are very common with diabetes and can have a great impact on your health.  The constant balance of blood sugars, the 24/7 responsibilities, and the mood swings from fluctuating sugars can wreak havoc on your mental health.  We will discuss ways to recognize depression vs. diabetes distress and where to find emotional support.  We will also explore the impact of stress on diabetes and how to manage it.

  • What new medications and technologies are either currently available now or will be here soon? Before a product is marketed it needs to be shown to be safe and effective in a clinical trial. What is involved in participating in a clinical trial and how can you become a research participant.

    Mark Harmel, MPH/CDE, Clinical research Coordinator at the USC Westside Center for Diabetes
