DSME Advisory Work Group Meeting: June 20th

The mission of the Diabetes Self-Management Education Advisory Work Group is to identify gaps, barriers, and opportunities to improve diabetes self-management education and diabetes prevention. 

   Our next meeting will take place on Friday, June 20th from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), at 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South, Glendale, CO 80246, on the first floor in the John Snow room.

    According to the 2012 National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME), the definition of diabetes self-management is, “the on-going process of facilitating the knowledge, skill, and ability necessary for prediabetes and diabetes self-care.” Providers and payers are realizing the importance of incorporating prevention in diabetes care, and the mention of “prediabetes” is evident throughout the 2012 National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.

     On June 20th, we will be discussing the opportunity to include the Diabetes Prevention Program in your accredited DSME program. Please RSVP to Christine Fallabel at
