Diabetes information is coming at us from all sides these days, and weeding out misinformation from science-backed information can be a challenge.  Our CWD community draws from a diverse grouping of online resources, hospital systems, and healthcare professionals to make decisions about their diabetes.

According to this week's poll, most of our respondents are tapping all available resources to stay informed.  Websites (like ours!), their peers in the diabtes space, and information from clinicians dominated the yes column, while hospital websites came in with fewer respondents.  (Says a lot about how people with diabetes lean on, and learn from, their peers.)

As an organization, CWD is dedicated to providing science-based information to our community, and we take pride in our ability to stick with the facts.
