May eNews  | Diabetes Ed Celebrates Nurses Week

Happy National Nurses Day and Week!

When I was considering college as a teenager, my dad offered me some simple advice, “Why don’t you become a nurse?” I rolled my eyes and said, “Nah, I am going to be a social worker.” Four years later, I stood proudly with my white cap and nursing pin securely fastened as an RN graduate.

As I reflect on my years in this noble profession, I have witnessed the most unselfish acts of love and pure heroism by my nursing colleagues. 2020 -2021 have been rough times for the four million nurses in the United States.

Nurses have not wavered from their commitment to providing care to even the sickest among us.

Like the founder of nursing, Florence Nightingale, nurses are “Holding the Lamp” and shining it in dark places that are scary and unknown to provide comfort to those who need it most.

In this newsletter, we celebrate Nurses.

Has a nurse touched your life? Check out our blog on 5 ways you can show thanks. Did you know that in addition to founding nursing, Florence Nightingale was a statistics whiz? You can discover more about this trailblazer in the blog below.

This newsletter also offers a fresh perspective on using the plate method to encourage healthy eating while promoting the pleasure of eating.

Also, we all know that living with type 1 diabetes isn’t easy. We are hopeful that you can help us get the word out about a study geared toward not only supporting people with type 1 but providing them with excellent information and problem-solving coaching. Read more about the Embark Study below and thank you for sharing this unique opportunity with those living with type 1 diabetes.

Finally, we are excited to share an updated approach to managing diabetes in the hospital setting and encourage you to take a look at our question and rationale of the week.

Thank you nurses for the love and care you provide every day!

Coach Beverly, Bryanna, and Jackson
