The Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) are updated by law every five years. The 8th edition, DGA 2015-2020 was released in January, 2016. Sign up for a National Diabetes Education Program webinar explaining the updates and describing how diabetes and health educators can incorporate the recommendations to help their clients.
Two nutrition experts will discuss recommendations for developing healthier eating patterns, suggestions for small, manageable dietary changes, and resources for putting the DGA into practice.
This webinar provides an opportunity to hear from community leaders as they share their experiences seeking reimbursement from health insurance programs for their diabetes self-management programs. Speakers share their lessons learned and how they developed the additional infrastructure needed to obtain reimbursement.
The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of Diabetes Conversation Maps™ education tools for diabetes self-management education. The researchers found that Diabetes Conversation Maps™ education tools are effective for delivering DSME and encouraging behavior change in people with diabetes, which, in turn, may improve their chances of attaining a desired level of diabetes control.
