Her official credentials are APRN, BC-ADM, MSN, CDE, which means she did a lot of school time!

Of particular interest is Theresa’s latest book, Your First Year With Diabetes: What to Do, Month by Month. A deft mix of humor and informative information, this guide is great for the newly diagnosed diabetic — and the nurse who wants to be able to impart useful information in a light-hearted — and memorable, which means (sometimes! hopefully!) adherence to the treatment plan — way. Strongly recommended!
