I learned a lot. This course tackles diabetes from different perspectives but the material was tailored in a way that it was very easy to understand. More power!

A very interesting course, with all aspects of diabetes well explained. Great lecturers, and nice interview format. I especially liked the focus on developing countries, and what is different about the diabetes populations there, since this was new to me.

powerful course

The course was easy to follow and understand. The information was useful, and the way the course was set up was simple.
