CORINNE FRUGONI

Long-time community diabetes activist, diabetes policy advocate and blogger, mother and wife, Christel Marchand Aprigliano believes that to live optimally with a chronic illness, you have to have support from friends, family and peers who live with the day to day, moment to moment challenge of facing something that never goes away.

On this week's Through The Eyes Of Women, Dr. Corinne Frugoni talks with Victoria Sweet about her new book, "Slow Medicine".

Good medicine takes more than amazing technology; it takes time - time to respond to bodies as well as data, time to arrive at the right diagnosis and the right treatment.
