HANNIBAL, Mo. — Hannibal Regional dietitian Kristy Taylor recently became a certified diabetes care and education specialist.

A CDCES educates, supports and empowers people with diabetes in a variety of areas such as problem solving, healthy coping, best practices for medication management and reducing risks associated with diabetes.

Taylor is an outpatient dietitian and coordinator for the Hannibal Regional Diabetes Center specializing in diabetes care and weight loss management.

In a press release, Taylor said, “My top tip for a person with diabetes is to visit with a CDCES every year. Diabetes can be overwhelming, and even when things are going well, there are many areas of life that we don’t initially connect with diabetes; such as traveling, changing shifts at work, or how mental health is impacted by diabetes. As a CDCES, I am here to support you and provide you with tools and resources to managing your diabetes in all aspects of your health.”

Jamie Cook also is a certified diabetes care and education specialist at Hannibal Regional Diabetes Center. Cook and Taylor offer a variety of services to patients with diabetes, including group classes and one-on-one educational visits.

For information or to make an appointment with Taylor or Cook, contact the Hannibal Regional Diabetes Center at 573-629-3382.
