” I have taken many courses in diabetes management and I should say this course was something else. It is interactive, covers a wide range of topics in diabetes management and contains videos of real patient examination as well as patient education. The videos make you feel you are visiting patients beside an expert endocrinologist and what can be greater than that!”
