Diabetes is an emerging epidemic. No matter what area of health care you work in, you will encounter people affected by diabetes. New approaches to diabetes management are continuously appearing.

Becoming a Diabetes Educator is a comprehensive three-day program for all health professionals who face diabetes in practice, with a focus on the US health care system. The goal is to update your understanding of the complexities of diabetes care, and learn effective approaches to educate those affected by diabetes. It is an ideal program if you want to earn continuing professional education credits, supplement your present career, or enter the dynamic and rewarding field of diabetes education and management.

The program covers fundamental diabetes knowledge and skills with didactic and interactive learning. Our team of diabetes experts will lead instructor-facilitated group discussions, and review lots of real-life case scenarios. Opportunity will be provided to learn diabetes management innovations from technology and pharmaceutical companies during the interactive Lunch & Learn. Time is built in for networking with colleagues.

Are you thinking about preparing for the US CDE examination? You’ll appreciate that all instructors include CDE examination-like questions in their presentations, and you can learn from the mini practice examination at the end of the program.


Becoming a Diabetes Educator is co-sponsored by the University of California, San Francisco, School of Nursing. It is endorsed by San Francisco Bay Area Association of Diabetes Educators (SFBAADE).
