Listen to Dr. Robin Goland Talk about Teenagers and Diabetes on NPR

Dr. Robin Goland discussed the soaring rate of teenage diabetes on National Public Radio’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook yesterday.

“If we don’t do something about [the rise of type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents], it is nothing short of catastrophic,” she said at the top of the hour. “We must prevent this from happening, figure out why it’s happening, and get a grip on treating it.”

Listen to the program to hear Dr. Goland (her segment begins at 7:06) in this provocative conversation with other experts from the Centers for Disease Control and the American Diabetes Association.
