STEP 498: Diabetes Disparities (CE: 1.0)


While 10.5% of the United States population (34 million people) has diabetes, that proportion can vary greatly between different races and ethnicities. Reasons for the disparities include a complex interplay between diets, physical activity, biological factors, education, income, knowledge of the disease, exposure to environmental pollutants and more. This article discusses disparity within different groups.
