Sharon Regional’s diabetes self-education program merits ADA recognition

The prestigious American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate for a quality, self-management education program was recently awarded to Sharon Regional Health System’s Diabetes and Endocrinology Center, 3150 Highland Rd., Hermitage. The ADA believes that the Center’s self-management program offers high-quality diabetes self-management education that is an essential component of effective diabetes treatment.

The Association’s Education Recognition Certificate assures that educational programs meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs. The standards were developed and tested under the auspices of the National Diabetes Advisory Board in 1993 and were revised by the diabetes community in 1994.

The ADA’s National Board of Diabetes Educators also recognized Sharon Regional’s Lisa Bertolasio, RN, BSN, CDE, for achieving ongoing certification, and Amy DeCesare, RN, M.Ed., CDE, for achieving initial certification in diabetes education.
