Know Diabetes by Heart™ Professional Education Webinar Series focuses on the link between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). The series will consist of relevant cutting-edge topics such as up-to-date standards of care, guidelines and their implications for T2D and CVD, and approaches to shared decision making — among other topics.

A Century of Diabetes Success: The Past as Prologue
In 1921, Canadian researchers demonstrated that insulin from cows could drop the blood glucose levels of a boy with diabetes to near-normal in a day. Soon, doctors were prescribing purified insulin to their patients with diabetes, kicking off a century’s worth of advances in pharmaceuticals and medical technology. But while those advances, from synthetic insulin to home glucose monitors to insulin pumps, have extended and improved the life of people with diabetes, it remains an epidemic and is the most common cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attack and stroke. Now, diabetes researchers are innovating new ways to prevent diabetes from developing, building an artificial pancreas to stand in for the patient’s, protect the heart and kidneys, or even achieve the field’s holy grail: a cure.
Best Practices for Managing Diabetes in Patients Hospitalized with Heart Failure or Stroke
We invite you to join us to hear best practices for better serving patients with diabetes and cardiovascular disease. American Heart Association’s Target: Type 2 Diabetes℠ Honor Roll aims to ensure patients with type 2 diabetes receive the most up-to-date, evidence-based care when hospitalized with cardiovascular disease or stroke. Featured guest speakers from Target: Type 2 Diabetes℠ Honor Roll award winning hospitals will focus on strategies for leveraging EMR systems, care coordination and more.
The Role of Diabetes Technology for People with Type 2 Diabetes and Impact on CVD Risk Management
Diabetes technology is evolving at a lightning pace. This rapid evolution can make it challenging for health care providers to stay up to date on technology options that are available to their patients with diabetes. This webinar will provide an overview of the latest technologies and how to identify the right technology for the right patient. In addition, participants will learn how data from these devices can aid in shared decision making to treat diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Beyond Awareness: How Do We Reverse Compounded Disparities in Diabetes and Heart Disease?
Delivering good health to all Americans, including groups that have faced discrimination or exclusion, has become a national priority. Health inequities related to diabetes and cardiovascular disease are well documented and are associated with poorer outcomes. How can health care providers adjust course and advocate for their patients? How can they bridge patient needs and societal issues? What interventions actually work? In this sponsored virtual salon, three leading experts will discuss the path to good health for all.
Heart and Stroke Summit
With a health equity lens, this summit explored the connection between type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease with a focus on best practices for delivering guideline-based care to improve patient outcomes. Our faculty bring content expertise in a variety of areas, including cardiology, neurology, endocrinology, diabetes management and education, quality improvement, stroke rehabilitation, nursing education, and more.
American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions Recap – Latest Research on CVD and Diabetes including Renal Risk Management
Join Know Diabetes By Heart for an expert panel discussion on new science released at the 81st American Diabetes Association’s Scientific Sessions. Panelists will discuss clinical highlights from the 2021 Scientific Sessions related to cardiovascular disease and renal risk management.
