Ettie Moghissi, MD, FACP, FACE, from the Marina Diabetes and Endocrinology Center discussed how doctors can be active in the process during the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists 24th Annual Scientific and Clinical Congress in Nashville. A website for the Blood Sugar Basics program can be a key tool in that effort according to Moghissi.
