The Chertow Diabetes Center diabetes self management program has been awarded continued Recognition from the American Diabetes Association! The program was originally accredited in 1992. Being an ADA Recognized Education Program signifies that our program offers high-quality diabetes education services to our surrounding community.
The Chertow Diabetes Center at Marshall University, focuses on education in four important areas to help individuals gain control of their diabetes: meal planning, exercise, medication and blood glucose monitoring. Additional topics include sick day management, foot and skin care, preventing complications, eating out, grocery shopping and label reading, coping with diabetes, and the importance of staying healthy.
We use group education in a relaxed learning environment, as well as provide individual sessions as needed. In group education sessions, the Healthy Interactions Conversation Maps are used to encourage discussion and participation and to facilitate learning. In individual sessions, the patient will meet with a diabetes educator to review personal blood glucose levels, discuss blood glucose monitoring, pattern management, individualized meal planning. Insulin pump training is also offered in a one on one learning environment.
Education is available on state-of-the-art technology including continuous glucose monitoring and insulin pump therapy.
