June Newsletter | Strategies to Provide Inclusive Care

Diabetes and Inclusivity – Strategies for Change

Click here to view our June Newsletter

Our community has faced many challenges in 2020. As a result of the pandemic, some health professionals have lost their positions or had jobs furloughed. We have shifted from in-person visits to telehealth. For those working on the front line, there is a real fear of being infected by COVID-19.

In our neighborhoods, we are witnessing many of our community members demanding a repair of social injustices. There is a recognition that worse health outcomes with COVID-19 and diabetes are often the result of longstanding social inequities in marginalized communities.

As diabetes advocates, we owe ourselves the time to reflect on how these inequities came to be and how we can contribute to their repair.

Certainly, as a community dedicated to health, we can stand up and acknowledge, address, and advocate to improve health equity for each person.

In this newsletter, we explore strategies to provide more inclusive diabetes care. From reflecting on the language we choose to how we set up and deliver our health care services. Let’s step back and take a new view from a different lens and see how we can be more welcoming to all people, but especially to those from marginalized communities.

We also celebrate the 2021 Medicare Cap on the monthly cost of insulin and share a warning on some brands of metformin. Lastly, we dive deep into two of our Questions of the Week and provide rationales.

Please consider joining Coach Beverly for her ADA Standard Intensive Live Stream Webinar Series (below). We invite you to join us for free as our guest. We want to make sure that everyone has access to this critical information.

  • The Microvascular Complication section was updated and new charts were added to clarify screening and diagnostic guidelines.
