Karen Shidler has been a Certified Diabetes Educator since 1996. She is the program coordinator and provides out-patient and in-patient education at Logansport Memorial Hospital in north central Indiana. She also organizes diabetes support group meetings and other special events such as a diabetes health fair. Karen is also a trainer for insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors. In this mini-class she will be talking about the connection between diabetes and sleep apnea.
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 future 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!!
