Career Spotlight: Diabetes Educator

According to the Centers for Disease Control, “diabetes affects 8.3% of the U.S. population.”  There are many healthcare professionals who assist patients with diabetes, but one profession has these patients and their families at the center of what they do.  Diabetes educators are described by their professional organization, the American Association of Diabetes Educators, as

“healthcare professionals who focus on educating people with and at risk for diabetes and related conditions achieve behavior change goals which, in turn, lead to better clinical outcomes and improved health status. Diabetes educators apply in-depth knowledge and skills in the biological and social sciences, communication, counseling, and education to provide self-management education/self-management training.”

Clinical psychologists, registered nurses, occupational therapists, optometrists, pharmacists, physical therapists, physicians, podiatrists, dietitians, physician assistants, exercise specialists, exercise physiologists, and social workers are all professionals who could pursue certification as a diabetes educator.  More information on certification eligibility can be found here.
