The American Diabetes Association (ADA), the nation’s leading organization committed to fighting diabetes by driving discovery through research and innovation, intensifying the urgency around the diabetes epidemic, and supporting people living with and affected by diabetes, has recognized the Deborah Specialty Physicians Diabetes Center through its Education Recognition Program.
The recognition assures that diabetes educational services from Deborah Specialty Physicians meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES). This recognition certifies that Deborah offers a staff of knowledgeable health professionals who can provide participants with comprehensive information about diabetes management.
The Deborah Specialty Physicians’ Diabetes Center provides state-of-the-art diabetes treatment and education, and includes a team of specially trained physicians, nurses, and dietitians who work directly with the patients and their families to achieve positive outcomes. Each patient receives individualized care, starting with an initial assessment and treatment plans.
Education is essential to successful diabetes management. The Center has Certified Diabetes Educators who assist patients in achieving the knowledge and skills to care for his or her diabetes, as well as helping with problem-solving skills to allow a patient to make decisions to improve his or her health. Additionally each patient receives a customized meal plan and subsequent follow-up with a dietitian to evaluate the effectiveness of that meal plan.
“We place a major emphasis on diabetes self-management,” said Jenine Vecchio, MD, Director of the Deborah Specialty Physician Diabetes Center. “Patients play the most important role in managing their diabetes day by day, and our Center is heavily invested in this patient education component. We are proud to be recognized by the American Diabetes Association for the high quality of the diabetes self-management education and support that we provide to our patients.”
