A local hospital earns a prestigious award for its part in helping people with diabetes control the disease.
This is the second time Marian Medical Center in Santa Maria has received the Educational Recognition from the American Diabetes Association.
It means that Marian's Diabetes Education Center has proven to surpass the national standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.
"Recognition by the American Diabetes Association guarantees that the local community is provided with a quality-driven diabetes education program," Sheri Etheredge, Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, Marian Diabetes Education Center Coordinator, said. "By taking advantage of the education opportunities Marian's Diabetes Program offers, individuals will increase their ability to be in control of the disease and live a healthy life."
Marian's Diabetes Education Center is one of 2,046 programs nationwide which have received recognition by the American Diabetes Association and is the only diabetes education program within Northern Santa Barbara County.
