The third DBlog Week topic, Language and Diabetes, is one that hits close to home for all of us. Currently, I’m saving many of my thoughts on the topic in anticipation of Stanford Medicine X in September. At MedX, I will be participating in an ePatient panel on mental health and chronic disease, and language will surely be discussed there. We hope you will join us- whether physically at Stanford, or virtually!
In the meantime, please see here for some prior thoughts on the words we use, and how we should use them.
