We’re talking about the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program or MDPP, an expanded model of the National Diabetes Prevention Program that includes an evidence-based set of services to help prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes among Medicare beneficiaries with prediabetes. We’ve invited Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietitian Linda Schoon to share her experience as an early provider of the MDPP at a health system in Northern Colorado. After hearing about her journey, you’ll walk away with a better idea of how to create a strong foundation to become an MDPP supplier, key staff and collaborators that will help your application, as well as the many benefits you and your clients can expect.

We’re discussing the importance of vaccinations for people with diabetes since we’re rolling into the start of flu season. We’ve invited Doctor of Pharmacy, Certified Diabetes Educator and passionate vaccines advocate Melissa Young to shed some light on why immunizations are a life-saving strategy all diabetes care and education specialists should be promoting in their practice.
