CHICAGO — In this video exclusive, Dawn Belt Davis, MD, PhD, associate professor in the division of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison recaps some of the exciting developments in type 1 diabetes presented at the Endocrine Society Annual Meeting.
