With the Flower Diabetes Educator Scholarship, she wants to keep investing in the health of our future by supporting future diabetes educators.
Her vision is to increase diversity in the diabetes education workforce by supporting diabetes nurse educators who come from underserved communities. By increasing the number of diabetes educators who represent the population demographics of those living with diabetes, we can make more meaningful connections on an individual and community level while promoting the best care.
The Flower Scholarship is a tribute to our donor’s last name, which translates to flower. The flower is a perfect symbol for this scholarship that aims to support the growth of novice diabetes educators into Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists.
Flowers are a symbol of hope and can be found growing in the most unexpected places, including harsh cities and forgotten spaces. With just a little sunlight and water, they have the ability to thrive in even the most difficult situations and shine their fierce beauty. Given a chance, as these flowers are tended to and nurtured, they grow stronger and brighter, spreading their beauty to new places to give people hope. These resilient flowering seeds perpetuate the opportunity for a future generation of diabetes specialists.
