Diabetes Management in Prison

  • : Online
Lecture Overview

Imagine being incarcerated and having your insulin taken from you at the door. After years of self-managing your condition and being in a routine, your independence and ability to control your life-threatening illness is suddenly removed. This is they very stark reality that people suffering from diabetes face when imprisoned. In this bold and frank talk, Raquel How makes her case for why it is so important that all prisoners be able to self-manage their diabetes, and how we can best manage this chronic, large-scale disease in Corrections.
