In the United States, 23.6 million people have diabetes. Therefore, as medical translators or interpreters this is a topic we may encounter often. But, what is diabetes?
Diabetes is a disease that occurs when a person’s body doesn’t make enough of the hormone insulin or can’t use insulin properly. As translators and interpreters we need to be familiar with terms such as hyperglycemia, A1C, diabetic neuropathy, among others.
During this 2-hour *recorded* webinar, participants will become familiar with basic concepts and terminology about diabetes in English and Spanish.
