The Department of Family Medicine's, Dr. Tamara Oser - director of the High Plains Research Network - has been invited to serve as the expert for the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases - Diabetes Discoveries & Practice Blog!
"Primary care physicians and clinicians provide diabetes care to 50% of adults with type 1 diabetes, and 90% of people with type 2 diabetes. In order for all people with diabetes to have access to evidence-based diabetes technologies, it is crucial that primary care researchers study the efficacy of diabetes technologies in primary care (versus studies conducted only through endocrinology), and also ways to best implement diabetes technologies into primary care setting which have different workflows than endocrinology practices.
The Primary Care Diabetes lab is conducting groundbreaking research with the aim to decrease disparities related to access to diabetes technologies, and it was an honor to be asked by NIH/NIDDK to serve as the expert for this topic on their recent Diabetes Discoveries and Practice Blog."
