Feedback from a recent participant: This Webinar New Horizons is filled with Bev’s energy, knowledge, and passion for diabetes that she replicates in all her teachings. She puts a demand on herself to be a mentor to all. Her information is well organized, full of current/relevant research, and helps CDE®’s * view into future as a changing world impacts diabetics.
