Webinar – Screening for type 1 diabetes: why is it needed?
November 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Screening of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in prone families in relation to autoantibodies can provide an opportunity to educate and prepare families for disease symptoms and prevent diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a dangerous and even deadly condition. Furthermore, therapeutic interventions under clinical development could significantly delay the onset of T1D and potentially stop the disease from developing at all.
At this webinar, we are looking at engaging world leading experts of T1D screening, as well as patients, policy makers and other stakeholders to help us to discuss the inclusion of screenings for pre-symptomatic type 1 diabetes into the standard care service catalogue.
The webinar will take place on Zoom and will start at 4pm CET/10am EST, registration is available on the JDRF website.
This webinar is hosted by JDRF, INNODIA and EUDF.
