November 14 – World Diabetes Day
November 14th is World Diabetes Day, and our Diabetes & Nutrition Education team is launching a campaign to educate providers about when to refer patients. One of the fastest growing global health problems is diabetes. In the U.S. just over one in 10 have the disease and one in three are considered pre-diabetic. Cascade Health’s Diabetes and Nutrition Education team is deeply committed to reducing this trend here in Lane County. A highly dedicated team of two registered nurses and three registered dieticians provide critical education to patients with diabetes as well as those who need nutrition counseling.
Here are two videos with Cascade Health’s Tracy Beckmann, R.D.N., L.D. discussing what the team does for their patients and why it is so important.
