News of the Center

We have initiated a series of learning sessions led by Mary Rose Deraco, RN BSN CDE and a rotating cast of featured guest speakers. Some of the initial sessions were geared to our type 1 diabetes patients, and in 2018 we will offer a series of workshops for type 2 diabetes.

Our original type 1 session focused on Looking Beyond A1c to Time in Range and using a CGM to spend more time in target glucose range, this was followed by ways to eat healthier and with T1D with tips on carb-counting and insulin timing. These sessions can be repeated according to demand and we have other sessions on the way for all patients.

These sessions are small groups of 5-15 participants. Most sessions will be billed to your insurance as an education visit. The sessions are held at 9033 Wilshire, check-in and pre tests are required before the session. Registration starts 30 min prior to the session in the clinic and the session is help upstairs in the 5th floor conference room.

If you can't make the sessions, some of the content will be available on our website. A preview of the Time in Range Session was featured in the summer edition of the newsletter and this issue reports on information covered in the Vaccinations for Adults with Diabetes Learning Session.
