World Diabetes Day is November 14, and UF College of Nursing post-doctoral associate Lisa Scarton, Ph.D., R.N., is participating in a panel discussion, hosted by the UF Diabetes Institute, in celebration of the day.

The event, A Panel Discussion on Women, Diabetes, and Health Equity, will take place from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Harrell Medical Education Building.

Marian Limacher, M.D., senior associate dean for faculty affairs and professional development at the UF College of Medicine will moderate five panelists representing the College of Nursing, UF Center for Gender, Sexualities and Women’s Studies Research, College of Public Health and Health Professions and IFAS.
