Event Description

Join the Foundation for Health Care Quality and the Bree Collaborative on Thursday, May 30th  from 12-1:30 PM PT for our next session in our Hot Topics Series: Metabolic Health Advancements and Equity. 

Applying technologies created for managing blood glucose in people with diabetes to broader population groups has great health promotion potential. Coverage policies and practice protocols influence who can access technologies with equity and quality impacts. Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1’s) have shown significant efficacy in reducing blood glucose, aiding weight loss, and reducing cardiovascular risk for some patients. However, patients and providers are experiencing the impact of the excessive cost for these medications in practice. Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) have revolutionized blood glucose monitoring and patient education and have significant potential in preventing progression of prediabetes to diabetes. While CGMs s are beginning to become more accessible, there remain barriers to access for communities who are most at risk. 

The Bree Collaborative is excited to hold a panel discussion followed by open conversation to continue building collective knowledge on metabolic health advancements, including GLP-1s and CGMs. The panel discussion will begin with moderated questions and then open to public Q&A and discussion. The session will be recorded and posted on our website at a later date.

Panelists to be announced.
