  • Winthrop's diabetes self-management education program has once again been recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for meeting the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs. Winthrop's Diabetes Education Program, originally recognized in January of 1987, was the first in New York State to receive ADA accreditation. Since it was instituted in 1979, thousands of people have participated in Winthrop's program.

    The ADA's Education Recognition Certificate is awarded for three years. Programs that achieve recognition status are supported by a staff of knowledgeable health professionals, who provide participants with comprehensive information about diabetes management.

    "Those who participate in an ADA recognized program are taught self-care skills that promote better management of his or her diabetes treatment regimen. Through the support of the healthcare team and increased knowledge and awareness of diabetes, patients can assume a major part of the responsibility for managing their diabetes," explained Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, APRN, BC-ADM, MA, CDE, Director of the Center. "We are pleased to once again be recognized by the ADA as offering a high-quality patient education program."
