“UMACO’s Diabetes Management & Education Program is exactly the type of program we envisioned when we set up our accreditation in 2009,” said Leslie E. Kolb, RN, BSN, MBA, Accreditation Director for the Diabetes Education Accreditation Program. “AADE’s accreditation assures that an accredited program meets the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support. Programs who meet this criteria are considered high quality and have been shown to improve the health status of the individuals who embrace the education and help to modify sometimes unhealthy behaviors, or simply provide the education that the person with diabetes has not previously received."
This program is highly recommended to:
||Individuals who have been diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes
||Diabetic individuals with no comprehensive health insurance
||Diabetic individuals who meets the income guidelines based on Federal Poverty Level
