A Focus on Type 2 Diabetes With Dr. Seth Baum

 In the latest edition of the Florida Chamber Series on Free Enterprise, Dr. Seth Baum, Immediate Past President of the American Society for Preventative Cardiology, discusses the nationwide movement, For Your Sweet Heart—developed in partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim to bring more awareness to Type 2 diabetes.

“The initiative was started to educate the lay public and clinicians about the very significant connection between cardiovascular disease and diabetes,” said Baum. “Through this initiative we’ve reached over five million people, and that connection is not very well recognized.”
