Celebrate the Insulin Centennial

Graphic for Lunch and Learn about Insulin
A Lunch & Learn discussion of the historical and current treatments for diabetes

The discovery of insulin in 1921 was a significant breakthrough for patients with insulin-dependent diabetes. Since that time, new technologies have greatly improved the quality of life for millions of people. Join us on November 9, from noon until 1 p.m. either virtually or in the Atkins Library Halton Room for a Lunch & Learn when Dr. Tonya Anderson will present about advances in this field of medicine, including new software systems for continuous glucose monitoring, insulin pumps using BlueTooth real-time data, and computerized insulin pumps.

Dr. Tonya Anderson is a Clinical Assistant Professor and Advanced Clinical Coordinator in the UNC Charlotte School of Nursing. In addition to her faculty position, Dr. Anderson currently works as a nurse practitioner providing care for individuals with diabetes, as she has done for more than 25 years, as part of her critical care nursing specialty.   She has dedicated her research to improving the health and lives of those affected by diabetes.

Attendees may bring their own food and drink.
