DMG’s Diabetes Education Program Recognized by the American Diabetes Association

January 26, 2011

Our Dia­betes Edu­ca­tion Pro­gram was recent­ly re-cer­ti­fied as a rec­og­nized pro­gram by the Amer­i­can Dia­betes Asso­ci­a­tion (ADA) for offer­ing a qual­i­ty dia­betes self-man­age­ment edu­ca­tion pro­gram. An ADA rec­og­nized pro­gram sup­ports ADA stan­dards to achieve per­son­al­ized edu­ca­tion which is an essen­tial com­po­nent of effec­tive dia­betes treat­ment. Pro­grams that achieve Recog­ni­tion sta­tus have a staff of cer­ti­fied dia­betes edu­ca­tors who can pro­vide state-of-the-art infor­ma­tion about dia­betes man­age­ment for participants.

Self-man­age­ment edu­ca­tion is an essen­tial com­po­nent of dia­betes treat­ment. Our ADA Rec­og­nized pro­gram teach­es self-care skills that will pro­mote bet­ter man­age­ment of a person’s dia­betes. Through the sup­port of the health care team and increased knowl­edge and aware­ness of dia­betes, the patient can assume a major part of the respon­si­bil­i­ty for his/​her dia­betes man­age­ment. Unnec­es­sary hos­pi­tal admis­sions and some of the acute and chron­ic com­pli­ca­tions of dia­betes may be pre­vent­ed through self-man­age­ment education.
