Diabetes in Mexico & US Seminar - Tuesday, February 7th

The next Department of Public Health Sciences Seminar is "Diabetes in Mexico & US"

Location: Tuesday, February 7th at 11 a.m. in CTRE room #504.

Drs. Cooper and Durazo-Arvizu are developing a project to follow-up on the findings from Mexico, in particular to determine why case fatality rates are so high.  Comparisons with appropriate cohorts of Mexican Americans in the US should help us understand the question of what key ingredients of diabetes management are missing in Mexico.

We are confronted with the question:  Is prevention the only hope, or can we reduce mortality and morbid events with medical therapy?

The associated readings for the discussion can be found below.
