Beyond Glucose Lowering: The Bigger Picture

The goal of this event is to promote interprofessional collaboration and appreciation for the skills we bring to the team as we work together for our patients with diabetes. Providing some deliberate networking time will allow us to share ideas, philosophies of care, and troubleshoot barriers. Sharing in the same continuing education program will allow us to realize that we share a professional knowledge base and common interests.

Our speaker will be Stephanie Smith, PharmD, CDE. Stephanie is a clinical pharmacist who sees patients at Ridgeview Chaska Clinic, Ridgeview Westonka Clinic and Ridgeview Specialty Clinic in Waconia. She is credentialed through the American Association of Diabetes Educators as a Diabetes Instructor to help patients manage their diabetes medications and lead a healthy lifestyle. The learning objectives for this event are:

  • Review the returning use of pioglitazone
  • Discuss impact of Glycemic Variability
  • Evaluate effects on albuminuria and renal function seen with SLGT-2 inhibitors
  • Summarize cardiovascular outcomes with the newer diabetes agents
  • Leverage the advantages of newer insulin therapies

Plan now to join us at one of four locations on Thursday, Nov. 10, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thanks to generous sponsorships, dinner will be provided at each venue. The following locations are confirmed:

  • Ewald Conference Center, 1000 Westgate Drive, St. Paul
  • The Canadian Honker Restaurant, 1203 Second St. SW, Rochester (presented in conjunction with the Southeast Minnesota District Pharmacists Association)
  • St. Cloud State University, Atwood Memorial Center, 720 Fourth Ave. S., St. Cloud
  • Duluth: UMD Campus, Life Science Building (165 Lsci), 1110 Kirby Drive, Duluth (presented in conjunction with the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy, Duluth)
