Thank you!

For supporting the certification process for your employees and, particularly for those who become CDEs in your institution, we want to say thank you! The credentialing process (both initial and renewal) helps ensure that people with diabetes have access to knowledgeable and skilled health care providers.


We hope you'll take a look at some of the patient testimonials we've received on behalf of people living with diabetes and their relationships with their CDE. Click here.

Find a CDE®

NCBDE has implemented a "Find a CDE®" option in our site. This feature provides people with diabetes an easy way to find a CDE® in their area. We hope that this area of the site will help promote quality diabetes education and recognize both the CDEs and the organizations that employ them as members on their health care teams.

News Release Samples

If you have a health care member of your team who recently became certified for the first time or successfully completed the renewal of their credential, we hope you'll encourage them to make use of the sample news releases available to announce that information.


If you would like to recognize the CDE® members of your team, there are two great ways to accomplish that idea.
