The Value of Certified Diabetes Educators for Patients and the Healthcare Team

NCBDE has created resources for you to share. 

NCBDE is committed to promoting the value of CDE® certification and the important role Certified Diabetes Educators (CDEs) play on the health care team. To support this goal, NCBDE has created one-page information sheets targeted to people living with diabetes or prediabetes as well as the health care providers CDEs work with on a daily basis. 

NCBDE needs your help to distribute the information sheets and share our important message.  The next step is simple and will take just a few moments of your time. You can: (1) download the PDF of each and email it to the individuals you provide services to and the other health care providers who refer patients to you; (2) print these documents and hand them out.  (Note: if you are printing out, consider sending to your local printer, such as a FedEx/Kinkos, to ensure a high quality product.)
