Motivation and Diabetes Management

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Motivation is essential to successful diabetes care management. 

From the shock of diagnosis to adhering to a prescriptive diet, exercise and medicine regimen, staying motivated and on top of diabetes management is anything but easy. 

Representatives from across the diabetes care ecosystem, including patients, providers, pharma, health tech and behavioral science join together for a panel that will address common barriers to motivation, and how technology can support improved medication adherence as well as physical activity, nutrition, weight loss, etc. 

Together, we will discuss the realities of diabetes care management, and explore ways we can leverage technology to remove motivational challenges to better engage, and activate patients in their diabetes care.
