A podcast episode featuring a discussion related to racial and ethnic disparities in the care of children with type 1 diabetes.

This episode of the Endocrine Outlook features a conversation with Terri Lipman, PhD, CRNP, of the University of Pennsylvania. In the interview, Lipman discusses and offers perspective on a recent study she led examining disparities in insulin pump use among children with type 1 diabetes.

An analysis of data from a Philadelphia-based center, results indicate Hispanic and Black children were less likely than their non-Hispanic white counterparts. In the following podcast, Lipman, who serves as the assistant dean of community engagement at the School of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania, sheds light on what she thinks are the most effective ways to confront these disparities at an individual and societal level.

The study referenced in this video, “Insulin pump use in children with type 1 diabetes: Over a decade of disparities,” was published in the Journal of Pediatric Nursing.
