11 am - Auditorium
Please join us for an informative lecture by Dr. David Kerr, Director of Research and Innovation at the William Sansum Diabetes Center in Santa Barbara. Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in America and elsewhere and the risk of developing this extremely serious condition grows dramatically with age. Also as we get older, the goals of treatment change as does the risk of serious and potentially devastating complications associated with diabetes. The good news is that it is never too late to learn. Dr. Kerr will share with you what we already know about diabetes in later life and our ground-breaking research we are leading which will have benefits not just here in Santa Barbara but around the world for people with the condition and those at risk of developing it. Dr. Kerr will give personal advice on what and how to check your own personal risk of diabetes complications.
