Elizabeth Sellars presents ‘Type 2 diabetes in Canadian First Nations youth: A story in evolution’, on Monday 18 June from 12pm to 1pm.
Type 2 diabetes is a new disease in children with an increasing prevalence worldwide. First Nation youth from central Canada have one of the highest reported rates of this disease. Our understanding of the etiology, natural history, treatment and complications of this disorder is in its infancy.
