I have been blessed to team teach with many inspiring, kind, knowledgeable and dynamic dietitians over a span of more than 20 years. They are trailblazers and advocates for improving the health of our communities, from the inpatient to outpatient settings. They have the best teaching tools (who doesn’t love the rubber chicken, food samples and empty cereal boxes) and a breadth of knowledge that they freely share with patients and colleagues alike.
I am pictured here with the amazing Dana Armstrong, RD, CDE who was blending shakes (at 7am) for participants at our Diabetes Educator Course in San Diego.
Studies show that when people with diabetes meet with a Registered Dietitian, they lower their A1c 1-2% points.
Studies show that only 10% of people with Diabetes and Medicare are referred to a Dietitian.
Let’s keep encouraging our providers to refer people with diabetes to our local Registered Dietitians for nutrition coaching and behavior change action for a lifetime.
Thank you for all your amazing work, your number one fan,
Beverly Thomassian, RN, MPH, CDE, BC-ADM
