Site covers the rapidly evolving landscape of diabetes treatment and management

May 28, 2014, 15:12 ET from UBM Medica US

NORWALK, Conn., May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US today announced the launch of EndocrinologyNetwork.com – a new online community and information resource for endocrinologists and other healthcare providers to help them better manage and treat their patients with diabetes.

With more than 20 million people in the United States suffering from diagnosed diabetes – and as many as 7 million more living with it untreated – there has been a vast amount of research into the origin, treatment, and progression of the disease. Endocrinology Network is specifically designed to help physicians keep up with the rapidly expanding landscape of diabetes treatment and management by facilitating the flow of information and knowledge between clinicians.

"Over the next 15 years, the number of pre-diabetes and diabetes patients is expected to rise significantly," said Susan Kweskin, Group Editorial Director at UBM Medica US. "Further, diabetes research is advancing at an unprecedented scale and speed. However, new life-extending, life-enhancing, error-eliminating, cost-cutting practices and therapies remain unknown or unused for too long.  Because of these factors, Endocrinology Network has been specifically developed to respond to the  increasing need for clinicians to have immediate access to the latest treatment information, best practices, and therapy advances."

Endocrinology Network will feature:

  • Interactive tools and webinars with specific focus on the spectrum of disease stages
  • Educational slideshows and videos designed by clinicians
  • Coverage and highlights from key conferences
  • Blogs from leading voices in the field of endocrinology
  • Quizzes
