Alumna honored for work in diabetes education

Veronica Diaz '02 AHS (UIC), BSHN, Exercise Physiology, has been selected as the Chicago area's "Outstanding Diabetes Educator of the Year," by a panel of local peer judges from the Chicago chapter of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. The group credits Diaz with outstanding leadership in diabetes education and with making significant contributions in diabetes education to the community, peers and other health care professionals.

Currently, Diaz is a clinical diabetes specialist with San Diego-based Tandem Diabetes Care. In that role, she helps doctors and patients learn how to use a monitor that checks blood-sugar levels every five minutes, eliminating the need for finger pricks.
