La Clínica Featured in NEJM Video Series on Diabetes Treatment

La Clínica takes a leading role again in Episodes 3 and 4 of the New England Journal of Medicine’s four-part series on diabetes treatment.

Suyanna Barker, our Chief of Programs and Community Services, Dinora Lopez, Health Educator, and Mirna Mejia, a La Clínica patient living with Type 2 Diabetes, were among those featured in the Controlling the Epidemic video series on the various aspects of diabetes treatment and supporting patients through individualized care.
