Diabetes By The Numbers: Joslin’s Dr. Munshi talks care for aging adults with diabetes.

After a brief hiatus, the Diabetes By The Numbers podcast is back.

Today’s podcast features Dr. Medha Munshi, Director of Joslin Diabetes Center’s Geriatric Diabetes Program. She’s co-authored a recent (and first ever) American Diabetes Association position statement designed to help homes and other skilled nursing facilities care better and more appropriately for senior patients living with diabetes.

Dr. Munshi shares key points on the position statement, and great insights on caring for older people with diabetes.
