Diabetes: A Historical Lookback, and Future Advancements
Diabetes still can wreak havoc on those who have the disease, especially those who don't have it under control. But it can be managed now, controlled, with diet and medication. Before Insulin therapy, diebetes meant death. Quick death. On the Sound of Ideas, Brandi Schillace of the Dittrick Museum of Medical History walks us through the history of diabetes, both types, the advent of insulin and treatments in the future.
Free Event on Monday, October 17 at the Global Center for Health Innovation, 1 Saint Clair Avenue NE, downtown Cleveland from 5:30-7:30 pm. Event includes complimentary refreshments.
