Disaster Preparedness Leader, Maryanne Strobel, RN, MSN, CDCES, believes that Certified Diabetes Education and Care Specialists (CDCES) have a lot to offer even if they are not reporting for their usual job. She has compiled a list of ways to get involved in virtual volunteering for those who are wanting to volunteer their time and expertise to their communities.
As Maryanne explains, “I am hearing from some of CDCES’s that they have been furloughed and are at home due to ‘stay-at-home’ orders or low hospital census days. Some are working reduced hours providing virtual medical visits or telephone consultation.
As professionals, we can continue to contribute and make a difference! Due to our unique inter-professional skill set, we have a lot to offer. We are in this profession out of a genuine desire to care for people, it is not in our character to sit back and watch as this pandemic unfolds.”Maryanne Strobel
