While diabetes spares no group of people, it hits some populations particularly hard. But everyone with the disease can work to control it and live a long, normal life. These were among the key messages brought to a Boston Museum of Science panel by Joslin’s Enrique Caballero, M.D. and William Hsu, M.D. The two experts gave a quick update on current diabetes management and discussed the particular issues faced by Latino Americans, Asian Americans, African Americans, and other populations at increased risk of developing the disease. You can hear much more from Dr. Hsu and Dr. Caballero on a Museum podcast.
