What is your presentation about?
In this presentation, we will discuss the state of disparities in pediatric diabetes with a specific focus on the relationship between socioeconomic status and diabetes technology use and A1C in youth with type 1 diabetes. We will also discuss a few drivers of health disparities in pediatric diabetes including the role of insurance and provider bias. We will conclude with changes that can be made at the individuals’, providers’, and system’s levels to address and improve the current state of inequities.

What makes this topic important in 2021?
There has been a national reckoning and awakening to the inequities in America in the last year. Individuals, researchers, and providers should evaluate and inform themselves on the state of inequities in pediatric diabetes care in America as a means to understand the current disparities and be informed about potential solutions.

Which subset of attendees shouldn’t miss this presentation?
Anyone who works in or is interested in the field of pediatric diabetes would find this work relevant. However, the scope of the underlying problem and drivers of disparities is such that all attendees will find the concepts discussed in this session pertinent.
