  • February - Exercise Myths, Mental Wellness, & Comforting Winter Recipes

    New ADA Standards recognize food insecurity and its impact on mental wellness

    In the first pages of the ADA 2021 Standards, there is important and detailed information addressing population health. This in-depth focus explores the Social Determinants of Health, acknowledging their impact on diabetes self-care and outcomes.

    Our feature article, contributed by Bryanna Sabourin, draws our attention to the mental toll associated with food insecurity. People with diabetes are at higher risk of not having enough food to eat due to socioeconomics. This is especially true for single mothers and people of color with diabetes.

     We explore the social impact and provide resources that diabetes specialists can share with those who are experiencing food insecurity and distress.

    In addition, I investigate some potential myths around exercise, sitting, and sleep. Are modern humans lazier and more under-slept than our ancestors? Regardless of the data, I'm not ready to give up my treadmill desk anytime soon!

    February kicks off Black History Month and provides me with a perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate a colleague that I worked with over 30 years ago. Ms. Davis made me feel proud to be a nurse and role modeled professionalism coupled with compassion.

    Our rationale of the week quizzed test takers on the latest 2021 ADA Medication Algorithms and addresses a common medication management issue. See what you think.

    With chilly weather blanketing much of the United States, it's a perfect time for some recipes that not only nourish our bodies but warm us up. We've put together our most popular winter recipes by Dawn Desoto, RD, CDCES.

    We love celebrating our DiabetesEd Online graduates. Most recently we are thrilled to congratulate Susan George for passing her BC-ADM Exam and sharing her story with us.

    Lastly, this Monday, I got my second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at 7:30am. One hour later, I was clocking miles on my treadmill (pictured above). I did experience some chills and body aches that evening, but by the end of day 2, I felt great!

    With affection and wishes for health,

    Coach Beverly, Bryanna, Dawn, and Jackson
