I created a custom Drupal theme for this project. It leverages Drupal’s powerful CMS features. It provides videos, podcasts, blogs, and research material about diagnosing and treating diabetes. Visitors can participate by commenting on blog posts or by reading case studies and voting on their preferred management option. Results are displayed on a map of the world so visitors can see how the options compare in different countries.
The Endocrine Society launched BetacellsinDiabetes.org based on recommendations from a meeting which brought together basic researchers, clinical endocrinologists, and primary care physicians (PCPs) to discuss the need to improve understanding of the role of beta cells as key drivers in the natural history of T2DM. The hope is that this effort will aid primary care physicians in the interpretation of concepts of disease pathogenesis, such as beta cell dysfunction, and improve medical decision-making in T2DM.
