ONE HEALTHY LIFE: Gloria

"Because there is a history of diabetes in my family, I was not surprised when I was diagnosed with the disease. What surprised me was the amount of time, effort and knowledge needed to manage my condition. Thankfully, I found the perfect partner-AAHP. With their free health education classes, diet and exercise programs, and social dining clubs for others living with diabetes, I have found the support and programs I need to help monitor my condition-and live my life with confidence."

Self-Management Counseling

An AAHP Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) provides one-on-one self-management counseling sessions with clients. During an initial consultation, the CDE discusses with the client his/her needs, knowledge about diabetes, and current treatment plan. The client and CDE then develop, implement, and evaluate an individualized plan of care.

For more information, please call 240-777-1833.

“But we are also each other’s best resource. Preventing type 2 diabetes and managing diabetes involves the entire family. Cook a balanced meal. Share a brisk walk. Talk with your family about your health and your family’s diabetes risk. Schools, work sites and places of worship can also be part of the diabetes prevention and management solution. What we can do alone to fight diabetes and its consequences, we can do so much more effectively together.”   –NIDDK, NIH
