Bertrand Chaffee Hospital is accredited by ADCES to Provide Quality Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES)

Bertrand Chaffee Hospital has achieved and maintained accreditation by the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists (ADCES) since 2013.

 Diabetes education services utilize a collaborative process through which people with or at risk for diabetes work with a diabetes educator, registered dietician, and pharmacist to receive individualized care to help them reach their health goals.

Diabetes education is a covered Medicare benefit when delivered through an accredited program and it is covered by most other insurances.

“Evidence shows diabetes education and support is helping people with diabetes to lower their A1c’s and obtain the knowledge and skills to better self-manage their condition,” said Sacha Uelmen, Director of Accreditation at ADCES. “That is why we need programs like Bertrand Chaffee to make these services available in their community.”

Bertrand Chaffee offers the five Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) classes each offered 6 times throughout the year, pre-diabetes classes, and a monthly diabetes support group. Please note that only pre-registered patients can attend.

“We are happy to offer this educational opportunities to our community members,” commented Kathy Hebdon, certified Diabetes Educator at Bertrand Chaffee Hospital. “We hope you will consider taking advantage of any of these classes to prioritize your health in 2023.”

For more information about the diabetes education program at Bertrand Chaffee Hospital or to register for any of these educational opportunities, please call (716) 592-9643.
