What people are saying:
"Extremely educational with great practical applications. Everyone involved with Diabetic management should take this course!!!! Nurse Educator
I also found everyone at the Carroll Center from Margaret herself to Brian Charlson and all the "computer people" to be very helpful and patient.
Thank you all for developing and making this program available--it was a great service and hopefully my exposure will help me be more effective in helping patients with limited vision better self manage their diabetes.
