Although every news day is filled with information about COVID-19, patient deaths and the seemingly snail’s pace of vaccinations, only one illness has seemingly been positively affected by the corona virus, and that is the flu. It appears that the use of masks, social distancing, and fewer sick people in the workplace has reduced the incidence of the flu by over 40%.

This week our intern from South College of Pharmacy, Destiny Funchess, has a great article on how best to treat your diabetes patients to prevent a cardiovascular accident.
