Master Chat: Benefits of Exercise and Risks of Avoiding it

Chris Anderson presents the Benefits of Exercise and Risks of Avoiding it

Chris is a volunteer RN and diabetes educator at a faith based, non-profit primary healthcare center for uninsured individuals in Alabama, which is staffed by 14 volunteer doctors, 70 other volunteers, and 6 paid employees. Last year they logged over 7400 patient visits. Chris began the masters at Teachers College Columbia so she could begin a diabetes education program for their patients, as there was not much DSME for uninsured folks in her town. With her help, the center began a DSME program at the clinic 1 year ago.

The Master Chat Series is an annual collaboration between TuDiabetes and Teacher’s College Columbia University’s Master of Science in Diabetes Education and Management program. This 36-credit inter-professional master’s program is offered to clinicians who are currently in or interested in the diabetes field. As part of a course requirement, students present ‘Master Chats’ on a variety of topics they have chosen based on discussions taking place in the TuDiabetes community. Master Chats include a 10-15 minute presentation followed by a Q and A, and it’s an opportunity not only for TuDiabetes members to learn from students in this program, but also to give feedback to them in an effort to help them be the best care-givers they can be!
