Education Events for Healthcare Professionals

As a leader in diabetes care and education, the LSCD provides workshops for practicing Certified Diabetes Educations (CDE), as well as health care professionals studying to take the CDE exam.

Practicums are designed to help CDEs provide the highest quality of care to complex DM patients, keep informed of current diabetes care best practices, and maintain their credentials.

The CDE Exam Prep workshop is designed to help prepare future CDEs to write the examination. Participants will work through key competencies as outlined by the CDECB, practice multiple choice questions, identify problem areas, and discuss study tips with experienced CDEs.

2021 Session

Please note: the LSCD 2021 Practicum Series has been cancelled. To effectively manage and prioritize patient care during COVID-19 the LSCD will not be able to offer the 2021 Practicum Series.

We intend to hold the CDE Prep workshop in May 2021 in order to support our colleagues writing the CDE Certification Exam.

The LSCD team remains committed to resuming our programs and will keep you informed as updates arise. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.
