“The Scarborough Hospital MiTy team strongly believes the MiTy study will prove positive outcomes for pregnant women with Type2 diabetes during pregnancy taking Metformin along with insulin. Our team members: RN, RD, site investigators and our secretary keep a close eye on incoming patients’ referrals and screen immediately for a possible MiTy participant. Good communication and collaboration is crucial. As soon as new patient, woman with Type 2 diabetes, meets the criteria for participating in the study we spend time with the patient discussing benefits of participating in study.”

Keep up the great work!
