We invite you to join our community of health care professionals who are passionate about improving diabetes care through education and advocacy.
At our company, we work diligently every day to provide diabetes information that is relevant, compassionate and cutting edge. Our goal is to help translate the complex science of diabetes into understandable terms that you can apply directly to the people you work with who are living with prediabetes and diabetes.
We know the road to becoming a diabetes educator and specialist is challenging. Many students aren’t sure how to get started or how to make the best use of their limited study time. See our Getting Started Page for more info.

Meet Dawn Desoto, our resident Nutrition content expert. Dawn has specialized in diabetes care for over twenty years.
As a diabetes specialist, Dawn provides individual and group coaching. Dawn launched a Diabetes Prevention Program in her community and provided plant-based cooking classes coupled with take-home recipes. The participants loved the helpful, delicious, easy-to-understand food demonstrations and recipes. But, a big motivation to keep coming to classes, was the fact that they felt celebrated and supported by the kind wisdom of Dawn’s approach.
In addition to her diabetes and nutrition expertise, Dawn loves to garden, cook, swim, bike, hike with her son and daughter. She also enjoys reading, traveling, and star gazing!
