4-5pm Eastern
9-10pm GMT

In the Winter of 2009, Dr. Parker was looking for step-by-step instructions for instituting a “diabetic Mediterranean diet.”  Why?  He is an internal medicine physician with many type 2 diabetic patients.  People with type 2 diabetes are prone to premature heart attacks, strokes, dementia, and death.  The traditional Mediterranean diet is associated with lower rates of those illnesses, along with increased lifespan.  So a combination “diabetic” and “Mediterranean” diet seemed like a great idea.  So Dr. Parker created the Diabetic Mediterranean Diet Blog.

I actually applaud Tudiabetes for doing something that really is super beneficial for Type 2 diabetics.

Sadly, I won't be to join the event because of my work schedule. Will there be an opportunity where I can view this later and perhaps write the good doctor if I have any questions?

I am, too! I'm interested to know more about this Mediterranean Diet.
