Leading Medical Experts to Discuss Promising Developments on Prescription Digital Therapeutics and Nutritional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Type 2 Diabetes Patients
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Better Therapeutics, Inc. (“Better Therapeutics”, NASDAQ: BTTX), a prescription digital therapeutics (PDT) company developing nutritional cognitive behavioral therapy (nCBT) to address the root causes of cardiometabolic diseases, today announced a virtual educational webinar symposium featuring a panel of medical and technology experts to discuss the use of nCBT delivered via prescription digital therapeutics to combat the underlying causes of cardiometabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes. This presentation will focus on the recently revised American Diabetes Association (ADA) Standard of Care guidelines which recommend digital support tools as part of a therapy regimen.
WHEN: Wednesday, June 1, 2022 – 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. ET
WHAT: The online symposium will convene a panel of experts to review the new ADA behavioral therapy guidelines while looking at how nCBT works to support behavioral change in patients with cardiometabolic diseases. Additionally, it will showcase how PDT can offer a unique mechanism of action that enables nCBT to be used at scale.
The panel will review and discuss recently released clinical trial data from Better Therapeutics’ pivotal clinical trial for BT-001, its digital therapeutic platform for type 2 diabetes. Released earlier this year, the clinical trial demonstrated significant reduction in A1c levels that surpassed results seen in patients using pharmaceutical solutions alone.
The symposium will also discuss the future potential for prescription digital therapeutics to address the ADA’s behavior change guidelines and to improve type 2 diabetes patient outcomes.
