Coach Beverly translates the complex world of diabetes into understandable terms.
As a national speaker at over 300 different venues, Beverly Thomassian, RN, MPH, CDE, BC-ADM presents each course with the philosophy that learning about diabetes should be meaningful and engaging.
Coach Beverly makes time available during the year to teach her all-day seminars and keynote addresses for conferences and organizations across the country. In addition to providing the latest research-based information, she incorporates story telling and interacts with participants through games, movement breaks and small group activities.
She believes you learn best while having fun!
“Beverly is dynamic, engaging and able to take a topic nurses think they know all about and surprise us with new, key information and practical ideas for teaching patients how to manage their diabetes. I have used some of the things I learned to teach members of my own family!”

“Beverly’s seminar is one of the few our hospital staff request year after year. Her energetic approach to teaching, paired with relevant and timely resources for our diabetes patient care make this a priority when creating my budget. On average I pack the room and this makes the cost per person so low it is an unbelievable bargain.”

Thankful to have been blessed to be your student. Your energy and joy are transparent through the whole day. You have been by far the best teacher I’ve met who knew how to simplify a difficult lesson and yet be factual and have references at the same time. You were sensitive and prepared to address those moments when we were falling asleep. Ruth D., Orange County Health Care Agency
