Diabetic Healthcare Cost (rebroadcast from 9/7/15)

It’s an age-old question that continues even as our nation’s healthcare system changes: are higher costs in health care for patients always associated with higher quality goods and services? One USF researcher took on that question, looking at the care that millions of Americans with diabetes receive. We look at his findings in this University Beat rebroadcast on WUSF 89.7.
