As we start marking time in months instead of weeks for the pandemic, social distancing regulations and suggestions are making people think twice about certain events, and doctor's appointments are on that list. We wanted to know what our community was doing in terms of medical appointments.

Big numbers coming in from this week's poll, and it looks like just about 60% of respondents have had to reschedule a medical appointment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Telehealth appointments are growing in number across the country, and many people are seeing their healthcare providers from the comfort of their home.

Every family should use science-based information to help assess their risk and act in a way that protects their health and well-being.  Keep up with our team for more information on COVID-19 and how it intersects with diabetes. Stay safe out there, friends.
