Dreyer Medical Clinic was recently awarded with the prestigious American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate for its diabetes self-management program.
The ADA believes that this program offers the highest-quality education that is an essential component of effective diabetes treatment.
The Association’s Education Recognition Certificate assures that educational programs meet the National Standards for Diabetes Education Programs. These standards were developed and tested under the auspices of the National Diabetes Advisory Board in 1983 and were revised by the diabetes community in 1994, 2000, and 2007.
“Dreyer is honored to receive this prominent recertification for our diabetes education program. Our comprehensive approach to diabetes allows us to provide outstanding care to our patients,” said Dr. Anil N. Keswani, Dreyer’s Vice President of Medical Management. “This recertification further demonstrates Dreyer’s dedication to providing the necessary resources for our patients to achieve their optimal health goals.”
Dreyer’s Diabetes Self-Management Education Program consists of a one-hour individual appointment with eight hours of group classes. During the individual appointment, educators will assess patients’ needs and help them set individual goals. During the group classes, educators work with patients to help them meet their goals.
