We are staffed with trained professionals such as Registered Dietitians (RD), Registered Nurses (RN), and Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE). All of which will work with you to understand how to manage diabetes and explain your specific needs. Together our RDs will create a personal meal plan, helping you improve your health and lifestyle by making lasting dietary changes.
An RD is the only healthcare professional trained in nutrition science. To become an RD, one must complete nutrition science classes and obtain a Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited university, complete a dietetic internship, and then pass a National Registration Exam.
A CDE is a health care professional (psychologist, RN or Nurse Practitioner, RD, occupational therapist, optometrist, pharmacist, physical therapist, physician, or podiatrist) who is specialized and certified to teach people with diabetes how to manage their condition. They must have a minimum of 2 years of professional practice, or 1,000 hours of experience helping people with diabetes, before qualifying to take the National Certification Exam. Meet our team.
