Marissa Cuevas, RD, CDE

Certified Diabetes Educator

One of the best compliments I have received was from a patient attending diabetes education classes, “I finally get it!  I have had diabetes for a very long time and I am finally getting it!” This is why I am so passionate about diabetes education; relaying the complexities of diabetes to patients at their level of understanding, providing a comforting and open dialogue of communication, and building trust during a hard time.
