Listing of Mentors by State (as of 4/7/2014)

A listing by state of currently approved CDE® mentors is provided below. This listing is provided to give interested individuals the opportunity to see how many mentors may be available in their state. This list will be updated as additional mentors are approved. Upon approval of an individual's mentee application, full contact information for all current mentors will be made available for pursuit of a possible partnership. If you know a CDE® who is not on this list, but who you feel would make a great mentor, please encourage the person to review the Program mentor eligibility criteria.

NCBDE wishes to thank these mentor CDEs and the other CDEs who have a mentor application under review for their commitment to diabetes education. We also thank the organizations that employ our mentor CDEs for their support of NCBDE's efforts to expand the number of CDEs available to people with diabetes.
