The American Diabetes Association Education recently awarded its recognition certificate to the Meritus Endocrine, Nutrition and Diabetes Education, or MEND, program for the quality of its diabetes self-management education program.
The association’s recognition means educational programs meet the national standards for diabetes self-management education programs, which the ADA believes is essential to effective diabetes treatment.
The MEND Center offers the full continuum of care for people with endocrine disorders, including prevention, community education, nutrition counseling and medical care. The approach encourages patients to make healthy lifestyle choices after they leave the program.
Educators work closely with patients as they learn and practice new skills until they become part of the patients’ daily life.
