In our second episode of the PILL podcast focused on diabetes prevention and treatment, Trudi speaks with Dr. Tamea Evans, a 2003 graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. Dr Evans is an Internal Medicine physician and diabetologist who is passionate about helping patients with long term illness get the tools and knowledge they need in order to get and stay well. Listen as she shares what it means to be “blessed by bad” and how doctors can be rewarded for doing a good job.

This episode includes a focus on diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES), a fundamental but underutilized element of diabetes care.
