Daily Access: Access to Affordable Insulin

As a diabetes educator and clinical pharmacist, insulin access and affordability is near and dear to me.  Earlier today, I was teaching in my diabetes elective discussing the psychosocial and financial challenges associated with living with diabetes. Access to diabetes medications especially insulin is at the forefront of these challenges.   Twice within the last week, I have switched brands of insulin to Walmart Relion brand insulin in order for patients to afford the insulin that they desperately needed.  Endocrine Society has recently released position statement centered on addressing changes needed in both policy and practice to improved access to affordable insulin.   Click on link below to learn more about this position statement.
