Ascension Medical Group Providence Endocrinology Clinic Earns Reaccreditation
[Waco, Texas] —Ascension Medical Group Providence Endocrinology Clinic has recently renewed its status as an accredited diabetes education pro
gram by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), a nationally accredited organization (NAO) certified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This allows people with diabetes in and around Waco increased access to high-quality diabetes education services.
Diabetes education is a collaborative process through which people with or at risk for diabetes gain the knowledge and skills needed to modify behavior and successfully self-manage the disease and its related conditions. The program is comprehensive and taught by diabetes educators.
“AADE’s accreditation assures that an accredited program meets the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support. Programs that meet this criteria are considered high quality and have been shown to improve the health status of the individuals who embrace the education and help to modify sometimes unhealthy behaviors, or simply provide the education that the person with diabetes has not previously received,” said Leslie E. Kolb, RN, BSN, MBA, Accreditation Director for the Diabetes Education Accreditation Program. “The Ascension Medical Group Providence Endocrinology Clinic is exactly the type of program we envisioned when we set up our accreditation in 2009.”
