Event Description

4pm PDT
6pm CDT
7pm EDT

After graduating from the University of Calgary in 2008, Brooke Kneteman worked in acute care in Calgary, Alberta. She moved to New York City where she has continued to work in a hospital setting. Brooke is currently finishing up her master’s degree in Diabetes Education and Management, and she plans to then study to become a nurse practitioner.  


This is part of our month-long series of mini-classes presented by students of diabetes education on the TuDiabetes homepage.

The classes will be broadcast live on the TuDiabetes homepage (no passwords or special links needed, just go to the homepage at the time of the event), with an open chat box below where you can post your questions and comments for each presenter.

This is an opportunity for two-way communication between the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) and our care providers. They get to teach us a bit about a topic they believe is interesting and important for people with diabetes, and we get to ask questions and give positive, constructive feedback about their approach! It's a true opportunity to affect how these providers will care for their patients with diabetes in the future... don't miss it!!

Sounds interesting! My endo often refers to the Somogyi effect, but in my experience, I don't think that I experience it (I only think that I go high if I overtreat my lows). I will try to make it, but it takes place at 1 AM local time --- so I may fall asleep!
