The Diabetes Educator Model Can Work for Other Diseases As Well

I love diabetes education. It reduces time pressures on busy physicians, and helps patients avoid complications of diabetes, if not roll back from pre-diabetes, and by-pass the disease altogether. Anyone can train and qualify to become a diabetes educator, and the public benefits are especially worthwhile in poor communities, and amongst people with low health literacy.

Cancer is another disease in which patient education yields major benefits, both in terms of prevention, as well in coping with the terrifying challenges of managing the condition.

Obesity, high blood pressure, many auto-immune disorders, most mental illnesses, and sexual illnesses can also benefit from professional educators.

Patient education is never for amateurs because partial knowledge of diseases can do more harm than good.

Support professional diabetes education by getting a certification of your own, or by using the services of a diabetes educator.
