Dr. Sunil Gupta recently presented “Diabetic Retinopathy and the Impact of Early Detection in Patients with Diabetes” for local healthcare providers and professions during Owensboro Health’s Tri-State Association of Diabetes Educators (TRADE) program.
“Retina Specialists in the United States your help,” proclaimed Gupta. “Today, Diabetic Retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working aged patients – and its completely preventable loss for patients and society.” Dr. Gupta was among two Owensboro Health providers, VP and Chief Quality and Patient Safety Officer, Dr. Bill Bryant and Maternal-Fetal Specialist, Dr. Thomas Tabb who shared information about diabetic disease and tools healthcare providers can use to help.
Attendees were able to obtain continuing education hours by attending.
