That reach is something fundraising campaign team members like Scott Wilson doesn’t view as a problem. That’s because the local United Way has worked with OneWorkSource to establish satellite offices in Malone and Elizabethtown to ensure there is stronger representation for the organization outside the Plattsburgh area. “I’m very excited about the satellite offices we have in each county now,” said Wilson. “It’s great to have those additions for the local communities.” “We needed to have a physical presence there,” Bernardi said of the Essex and Franklin county locations. “We’ll be able to hold group meetings and host functions while promoting OneWorkSource. It’s mutually beneficial for us to be there.” The enhanced presence in Essex and Franklin counties will also help combat an incorrect perception that organizations in those counties don’t benefit from United Way of the Adirondack Region. Organizations like the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity of Clinton and Franklin Counties, Literacy Volunteers of Essex and Franklin Counties, and the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill of Champlain Valley are just a few of the ones that help areas beyond the Plattsburgh area, said Bernardi. “I run it to that all the time,” Bernardi said of the misconceptions. “Field offices help offset that idea and show people we’re more than just Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh ... We are very regional in nature, and we’re all connected, whether we’re in Ticonderoga, Tupper Lake, or Malone. We’re all connected from one town to the next, in a variety of ways.” Though this year ’s fundraising campaign team met for the first time July 16, the official kick-off for the 2010-11 fundraising campaign won’t take place until this September. Details are currently being finalized. Those interested in more information about making a contribution to United Way of the Adirondack Region may call 5630028 or visit

Invisible Fence donation to help emergency responders help animals By Jeremiah S. Papineau CHAZY — The Chazy Volunteer Fire Department is now able to help rescued animals breathe easier thanks to a donation from one local business. Invisible Fence of Champlain Valley presented the department with an animal rescue oxygen mask kit July 19, now giving the department specialized equipment for animals that suffer smoke inhalation. Invisible Fence representative Kevin Carter presented the donation to department members, explaining how the mask is used similar to an oxygen mask for human smoke inhalation victims. Carter, who has pets of his own, said he personally felt proud to make the donation on behalf of Invisible Fence as part of the corporation’s “Project Breathe” initiative. “I consider my dogs part of my family,” said Carter. “I treat them like my kids and I know there are a lot of other families out there that feel the same way about their pets. If there’s one success story we can get out of all of this, if we can maybe save the life of one pet, it’s definitely worth it.” Dan Harriman, rescue captain for the department, said the donation was one that was very appreciated and could

prove useful in saving the lives of many animals. “I think it’s great,” Harriman said of the donation. “We do have fires in the area where animals can suffer from smoke inhalation. This will be something we’ll be able to have on one of our first responding trucks to be able to assist those animals.” While the primary focus of rescue crews at a fire scene is in saving and preserving human lives, Harriman said he understands how people devastated by the fire are just as devastated at the thought of losing their family pet. “Once the family is out, a lot of times they’re concerned about animals if they have them,” said Harriman. “It becomes another part of us saving lives.” Carter said Invisible Fence plans to provide similar kits to other departments in the area, noting the donation to the Chazy department was “the first of many more.” “We want to do this for all our emergency service providers in Clinton and Essex counties,” said Carter. “We’d like to have one on each department’s vehicle.” That would be all right with Harriman. “It’s great to be able to get a donation. Any donation helps the department,” he said.

CCC adds ‘new’wind turbine program to growing list of green technology offerings PLATTSBURGH — Clinton Community College has received news from the New York State Education Department that a ‘new’ Wind Turbine Service Technician certificate program request has been approved and will be offered this fall. The certificate is designed to prepare students to begin their career in wind energy or enhance current employment in the renewable energy industry. The 31-credit hour program will provide students with a strong background in industrial electricity and mechanical systems in order to safely and competently work in the wind energy industry. All credit hours in this certificate are transferable to the Wind Energy and Turbine Technology A.A.S. degree program. “The Wind Turbine Service Technician certificate will complement our Wind Energy and Turbine Technology

A.A.S degree that began last year,” said Dr. Cheryl Reagan, vice president of academic affairs. “A student can complete the certificate full time in a year and the degree in two years. The graduates of the certificate will have the necessary skills to go right to work on the wind turbines. Those who choose the degree will have the skills to supervise the technicians and troubleshoot.” “We are very excited to be part of New York’s renewable energy goals and provide the opportunity for our community members to gain the necessary skills for employment,” added Reagan. Mark Buckley, assistant professor of the Wind Energy and Turbine Technology Program said, “A graduate from the Wind Turbine Service Technician Certificate program will be able to perform a variety of maintenance procedures not

only on wind turbines but on a wide range of electrical and rotating mechanical systems.” “Classes will have an array of lab activities that will simulate problems that are commonly encountered in the field,” he added. “Two years ago, Clinton Community College became the first and only college in New York to offer an associate’s degree in Wind Energy and Turbine Technology,” said CCC president John E. Jablonski. “Today we are pleased to announce our new one-year certificate program, another first in New York State.” For more information about the new Wind Turbine Service Technician Certificate program, contact Mark Buckley at 562-4303, college admissions at 562-4170 or 1-800-552-1160, or visit

Crown Point woman receives a new home, new independence Credits Plattsburgh Housing Outlet for helping make her dream happen By Jeremiah S. Papineau CROWN POINT — Valerie Hunsdon is a success story in the eyes of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development agency. The agency presented Hunsdon with a ceremonial key to her new home July 2, as part of a “Welcome Home” event highlighting National Home Ownership Month. Hunsdon, a single mother of one, recently received assistance from the USDA’s home loan program and the Housing Assistance Program of Essex County. Hunsdon said she was excited by the recognition and said the process to owning her home was a long and difficult one. Hunsdon’s journey to where she is today began more than 18 years ago, when a car accident left her paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Five years ago, she and her husband divorced, leaving her to move with her then 1-year-old son into her parents’ home. “There weren’t any apartments that we’re wheelchair-accessible,” Hunsdon said. Then, when her niece was purchasing her own home, she told Hunsdon about the Housing Assistance Program of Essex County and how the program has grant money available to qualifying first-time home buyers. Working with USDA Rural Development, Hunsdon made up the difference to purchase her home by receiving a low-interest loan. All that was required was for her to take a homeowner education course. “They want to make sure you can handle money and can budget and be able to afford your mortgage, power and things like that,” explained Hunsdon, who said it took a year from the time she contacted the housing assistance program to the completion of the course. During that time, Hunsdon also began working with Michelle and Eric LaBounty of Plattsburgh Housing Outlet in Plattsburgh to design a new modular home. “We spent months designing a house that would be accessible for me and give us the space we need,” said Hunsdon. Hunsdon and her son, Travis, have been sharing a bedroom since they moved into her parents’ home. Though a two-story house, Hunsdon said she really has only had access to the ground floor because of her condition. “My bed is two feet away from his and I’ve got a dresser pinched in between my bed and

the wall,” she said. “I don’t mean to sound ungrateful or selfish by any means, but we’re just confined.” Downsizing from living in their own home to sharing a portion of one floor of a house has also meant living with mainly the bare necessities. “I have a storage shed full of my life that I don’t even know what’s in there from five years ago,” said Hunsdon. When Hunsdon and her son finally occupy their new home, which is nearing completion, it will be an amazing feeling, she said. “It’s going to be like I have my life back,” said Hunsdon. “Again, I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but it will be just so incredible to have our own place.” Hunsdon’s new home will have three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a combined kitchen, dining room and living room area, complete with an attached laundry area. “It’s going to be 1,400 square feet,” she said. “It’s going to be incredible. I’m very, very fortunate.” Hunsdon said she wouldn’t have gotten to what she calls “a community event” without “an overwhelming amount” of help an encouragement.

July 24-30, 2010

“I can’t tell you the support I’ve had since my accident, since the separation from my husband and through this with my house,” she said. “The list is just so long of the people who have helped me. It didn’t matter what kind of turmoil popped up ... I’m just thankful to everyone.” “I am thankful for all of the blessings from God,” she added. Hunsdon said she especially thanked the LaBountys for their help in the process, becoming more than people who sold her a new home. “Michelle and Eric were great. They were so personable,” said Hunsdon. “It’s like they’re part of the family now.” “It has been a really great learning experience working with Valerie,” said Michelle LaBounty. “I have learned so much about her needs that will translate well for future clients who also need wheelchair accessibility.” “It has been so great watching her family and entire community rally around her as she enters this next chapter of her life,” LaBounty added. “I feel very lucky to have met her and for the opportunity to help her build her new home.”

By Jeremiah S. Papineau CHATEAUGAY — The Chateaugay Rotary Club is looking to get people plugged into Adirondacks Unplugged. The summer music festival, now in its third year, is raising money to restore a piece of the town’s history — the Chateaugay Theatre on East Main Street. Bill Fitzgerald, promoter for Adirondacks Unplugged, said the Chateaugay Rotary Club has teamed up with the Chateaugay Revitalization Committee and McCadam Cheese to host this year’s event, slated for Thursday, Aug. 5, at at the Chateaugay Recreation Park on State Route 374. “This initiative is one the entire community has embraced,” Fitzgerald said of the theatre’s restoration. “And, once complete, it will be a great source of pride and activity for the community.” The first phase of the estimated $90,000 restoration will involve a complete renovation of the more than 400-seat theatre. Improvements to the theatre’s lighting, sound and decor will be among the chief concerns addressed, said Fitzgerald. “We’re about there with all the fundraising that’s required,” he said. “We’re hoping that with this event it will put us over the top so we can begin this project very soon.” Additional improvements would be planned “down the road,” said Fitzgerald, but, for now, the idea is to establish a place from which to start what he feels will be a success story for Chateaugay. “We’re looking at this first phase as a way to get this theatre up and running and to create some buzz in the community and the surrounding area,” he said. “The more activity and people we can bring to the community with this as the centerpiece, there’s no limit to what might be possible for Main Street.” Once restored, Fitzgerald said it’s quite possible the local high school could host a movie night once a month in the theatre and a theatre camp in the summer. “We’ve even talked about connecting with the theatre program at [the State University of New York at Plattsburgh],” said Fitzgerald. “This would be a great opportunity for a student who might be looking for an internship to run a theatre for the summer for college credit.” “This really is a case where if we can get this fa-

cility renovated as we have planned, there’s no limit as to what can happen,” he added. Though keeping in mind plans for the future, Fitzgerald’s sights are still set very much on the present, particularly on making Adirondacks Unplugged a success. And, by bringing in countryrock band Stonehoney to headline the event. “They are just an awesome country-rock band,” he said. Stonehoney, which just released their debut album, “The Cedar Creek Sessions,” just began a national tour, with Chateaugay fortunate enough to be a stop on the list, said Fitzgerald. “We were able to get their attention,” said Fitzgerald, who credited the idea to Drew Scott, a disc jockey for Wild Country 96.5 in Malone. “People are going to be thrilled with the quality of music that we’re going to bring.” Opening for Stonehoney will be Plattsburgh rock band The Angry Neighbors and Burlington’s Caroline O’Connor, who is originally from Chateaugay. “The whole idea behind Adirondacks Unplugged is to create this brand that’s synonymous with great music and entertainment,” said Fitzgerald, adding he believed this year’s mix of up-tempo artists does just that. “It’s going to be a really good time and affordable for everybody.” The Aug. 5 event will open at 5 p.m. with performances scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The open-air concert will be held rain or shine and attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for seating. Admission will be $7.50 for adults. Students younger than 12 years old will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets are on sale at Alix’s True Value and Wendy’s Quick Stop in Chateaugay, Dick’s Country Store in Churubusco and on-line at or Adirondacks Unplugged is sponsored by Horizon Wind Energy, The P.K. Curtin Fund, McCadam Cheese, and the town of Chateaugay. (Editor’s Note: Denton Publications is giving away tickets to Adirondacks Unplugged courtesy of the Chateaugay Rotary Club.

Changing the way they do business By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — For the last four months, things have gotten a little greener at Hulbert Bros. Inc. Showroom manager Allison HulbertBruce said the business has been looking to for little ways to help the planet. “It’s something that the president Dale Miner and I feel very strongly about,” she said. “We just both like to think along the liens of products that are earth-friendly and doing things that are going to be more environmentally-friendly.” One big initiative was to recycle all white paper and magazines and catalogues. In a weeks time, Hulbert-Bruce said it’s not uncommon to fill a 55-gallon drum of white paper. “That’s just for the office itself,” she said. By making the change, Hulbert-Bruce said it not only helps the environment, but the business as well. “As we reduce the amount of trash that we generate as a business, then we might be able to downsize the size of the dumpster that we have to lease from the trash company,” she said. In terms of magazines, Hulbert-Bruce said that was a large amount of their trash before. “We get a lot of trade magazines here,” she explained. “Six or seven people may have a subscription to the same magazine, and so all of those people are then just read-

ing them and throwing them away.” For catalogues, Hulbert-Bruce said any time a product catalogue is revised, they have to throw out all their old ones, as they will not longer be current. To dispose of the paper and magazines, the business contracted with a man who picks up the paper and brings it to a recycling center. Hulbert Bros. Inc. is not only being earthfriendly within the business, but also in the products they sell. “Our business, in general, is very much turning toward water conservation, because we’re in plumbing and heating,” HulbertBruce said. “We sell a tremendous amoutn of products that are environmentallyfriendly.” From low-flow toilest and low-flow shower heads, to alternative fuel such as wood pellets and bio-fuel bricks, the business has taken a strong look at what they sell. They have also changed their own boiler system to gas, instead of oil. “We obviously also sell heating systems that are gas, rather than oil,” explained Hulbert-Bruce. “We sell solar heating systems as well.” The changes the business has made is something Hulbert-Bruce said is something other business can and should do as well. “It was a very simple thing to do,” she said. “It’s been a very simple thing to implement and I think if it can be done here, it can be done anywhere.”

Tournament celebrates 15th year helping Hospice North Country Golf Club event raises $40,000 in memory of Carol Wallett By Jeremiah S. Papineau CHAMPLAIN — When it came to establishing an event in memory of her late mother, Alyssa Favro said a golf tournament would have been the only thing that made sense. “It made sense to have a golf tournament, because she was obsessed with golf,” said Favro. “If it was raining and no one else was on the golf course, she would be,” said Favro’s father and Carol Wallett’s husband, Bob Wallett. When his wife passed away from cancer 15 years ago, Wallett said he wanted to do something to both honor his wife’s memory and help Hospice of the North Country, which provided care for her Blue skies and warm temperatures greeted participants in the 15th annual Carol Wallett Golf during her final days.

I’m just in awe this is our 15th year.” Tournament has gone from an event with a few friends and family

Wallett and Favro noted that’s because of the support the event has received year after year. “It’s a community event now,” he said. “We go to businesses and individuals and we solicit gifts, either for the silent auction we have or as hole sponsors. The community is so generous.” “I’m not surprised,” Wallett added about the support the tournament receives, “because it’s such a great cause. But, obviously, I’m still overwhelmed and humbled we can raise that kind of money.” Kent W. Brooks, executive director for Hospice of the North Country, said the organization wouldn’t know what to do without the Wallett family’s continued commitment to hosting the tournament. “It goes a long way in the avenue of helping us to provide above and beyond the minimum to our patients,” said Brooks. “It’s been 15 years now and it just seems to keep growing. Everybody just wants to continue to honor the memory of Carol and, at the same time, support our great cause.” “It’s amazing because there are a lot of golf tournaments for nonprofit and for different organizations all over the place,” said Amanda M. Bow, Hospice’s director of development. “The fact this tournament has such success and staying power proves people loved Carol, love Bob and want to support Hospice.” Knowing the tournament is considered a great success is something his wife would be proud of, said Wallett. “She’d be very humbled, actually,” he said, noting his wife wasn’t one to ever want to make a fuss over her own accomplishments or want to be the center of attention. “She’d actually be embarrassed that her name’s attached to it,” said Favro. “But, she’d be very impressed and very proud on how much it helps Hospice.” Those who were unable to participate in the tournament are still able to make donations in memory of Carol Wallett to Hospice of the North Country, 358 Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh N.Y. 12901.

Fight for the win By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — Frank Palumbo first took up wrestling 18 years ago and his passion for martial arts has only expanded from there. “I started wrestling in seventh grade, pretty much because my older brother did,” Palumbo explained. “I got into that and found out I was pretty good at it and I liked it a lot. So, I just did as much as I could.” Continuing to wrestle through high school and college, Palumbo is a three-time NCAA All American and a National Champion. He also received the Male Athlete of the Year in 2001 at the State University of New York at Brockport. Now Palumbo has built up his repertoire to become a Mixed Martial Arts fighter — which brings in a variety of techniques from combative sports such as boxing, wrestling, judo, kickboxing and more. To best explain the sport of MMA, Palumbo quoted the philosophy of Bruce Lee, stating, “Don’t choose to do one thing, do all things.” After working at the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department, he became familiar with a local group known as Plattsburgh Combat Sports, who practice MMA. “They’ve been around for I think about two years now,” he said. “Pretty much just a group of friends that work out here at the gym and get together to do grappling, JiuJitsu, boxing, martial arts.” To utilize his skills, Palumbo, along with his brother-in-law and cornerman, Tim Dur-

ney, head to Vermont to compete. The next competition — Burlington Brawl — will be this Saturday, July 24. To prepare, Palumbo said he trains both physically and mentally. “Besides diet, we exercise, we do a lot of weight lifting and try and do as much sportspecific exercise as possible,” he explained. “Pushups for punching, a lot of wrestling and a lot of lifting.” To mentally prepare, Palumbo said a lot of it actually comes from the physical training. “The more physically prepared I know I am, the better I feel about it,” he explained. However, Palumbo said he also does a lot of visualization.

Summer Outdoor Adventure program begins Tennis clinic to CADYVILLE — The Clinton County Youth Bureau and Town of Plattsburgh Recreation Department will co-host an Outdoor Summer Adventure program Monday, Aug. 9 through Friday, Aug. 13. This free three-day program will introduce two groups of 10 youth, age 14 and older to such skills as hiking, flat-water kayaking, map reading, environmental and historical issues, team work and outdoor leadership skills. Previous hiking and/or paddling skills are not required. On Monday, Aug. 9, group 1 will flat-water kayak on the Saranac River on Cadyville Beach. The group will learn basic flat-water kayaking skills including forward, reverse, sweep, brace, and sculling strokes. The group will also learn individual and team rescues. Group 2 will do the

same Tuesday, Aug. 10. On Wednesday, Aug. 1, group 1 will flat-water kayak approximately 7.5 miles down the Saranac River from Saranac to the Cadyville Beach. They will discuss river paddling skills and how they differ from open water paddling, local wildlife, and the importance of wetland preservation. Lunch will be provided at the Cadyville Beach. Group 2 will do the same Thursday, Aug. 12. On Friday, Aug. 13, groups 1 and 2 will be bussed to Poke-O-Moonshine to hike up this popular mountain. All equipment will be provided.

“[I] try to imagine myself in as many situations as I can in my mind, before it actually happens,” he said. Currently, Palumbo competes in states such as Vermont and Rhode Island, because MMA is not sanctioned in New York. “We’re trying to change that,” he explained. “We’re writing letters to senators and congressmen, just trying to persuade them that it’s a good thing, it’s not a barbaric thing.” If interested in learning more about MMA with the Plattsburgh Combat Sports group, Durney said those interested just need to have a membership to the city gym. The group can be found on Facebook by searching “Plattsburgh Combat Sports.”

Blog chronicles woman’s adventures in vegetarianism By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — When Amanda Dagley became a vegetarian nearly 12 years ago, it was a decision that was easy for her — for the most part. “I think bacon was the hardest thing to give up,” she said, laughing. “I think it’s one of the hardest things for any vegetarian to give up.” Dagley has taken her experience of “going vegetarian” and put it to use for others practicing the same eating habits and those considering making a change in their dietary lifestyle. She recently unveiled her new blog, “The Pugnacious Vegetarian,” designed with the help of friend Corey Collins. The idea behind the site, was simple. “The Pugnacious Vegetarian blog is my chronicle of my adventures in eating and cooking,” she said. “I want to be able to share that with people.” The decision to drop meat from her diet was a personal one, said Dagley, mainly due to concerns over factory farming. However, Dagley also felt it was a decision that would improve her health. “I would eat a hamburger here or there and I would eat chicken here or there and one day I said, ‘Why am I holding on to this? I don’t like it. I don’t like the way it makes me feel,’” she said. “And, then, one day I just decided I wasn’t eating it anymore.” The road to become a true vegetarian wasn’t always an easy one, though, Dagley admitted. “I’ve learned the hard way, eating

some pretty gross things in the process,” she said. However, becoming a vegetarian is something that involves dedicating time to finding foods that are right for you — but healthy at the same time. “I find a lot of new vegetarians live on the pizza and French fries diet, because it’s vegetarian. Really, though, it’s not healthy,” said Dagley. “And, if you have no idea what to eat, you’re going to get sick of it and want to eat like everybody else.” The important thing is reading “every label” on the foods you purchase, said Dagley. “When people become vegetarian, it can be very hard. You have to have

the dedication to want to read the package of everything you put in your mouth,” she said. “If something has more than five ingredients, there’s a lot of Xs and Os and Zs, and you can’t pronounce it, do you really want to eat it?” Those who’ve never tried going vegetarian can often fall into the trap of thinking all food for vegetarianism must be disgusting, said Dagley. “I’ve had several people assume I must eat gross things. And, if you eat what are called meat analogs, like veggie burgers and dogs, they can be pretty gross because they’re trying to be something they’re not,” she said. “But, if you eat a tossed salad, it’s still vegetarian.”

Plattsburgh’s sending you Bike to the Future By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — When it comes to one local band, they’re not looking back. They’re only looking to the future. Corey Collins, Jarrod Britt, Nate Crowningshield and Justin Passino got together in March, combining their unique sounds to form the band Bike to the Future. However, they’re no strangers to the music scene. Collins, the band’s main vocalist, used to be in a local punk band with Passino called Yo, Adrian, which disbanded in January. “At first I don't think either of us were really looking to start anything new, but after about a month we began to go stir-crazy,” said Passino, the band’s guitarist. The two got together with Crowningshield, who was between projects at the time, landing him as the band’s drummer. Only after a couple practices with Crowningshield on drums, it was clear there was an interesting dynamic, said Passino. Collins’ friend Britt moved to town a few weeks later, bringing with him his talent at slapping the bass. It was from there that “everything fell into place,” said Passino. The band’s mixture brings out what Passino describes as “melodic punk.” “We all listen to different types of music,

so we don't really sound like anything specific,” he said. “We've taken everything we love and mashed it together.” The guys do, however, have some common favorite bands like Jimmy Eat World, Alkaline Trio, Saves the Day, Hot Water Music and The Get Up Kids, which plays into their musical influence. Their sound is also influenced by the energy they put into their shows, said Passino.

“We love to joke around a lot and talk to people in between songs,” he said. “I think a lot of bands in general take their band's image too seriously. If you want to succeed, it's good to have a plan and a lot of motivation, but you can't forget why you started playing music in the first place.” The key is finding the perfect balance, said Passino. “For us, it's about connecting with our au-

dience. We don't have fans, we have friends,” he said. It also helps Bike to the Future is only interested in playing and booking all-ages shows. “I think a lot of our local bands are doing this and it's great,” said Passino. “There's nothing wrong with the bar scene, but we want everyone to be able go to our shows and our friends' shows if they want to ... I don't want to deprive anyone of that just because they aren't old enough to drink.” Bike to the Future has been a regular performer at Coffee Camp on Margaret Street, playing their first show with Jaclyn Falk, Adrian Aardvark and Kevin O'Malley Bike Ride, which Passino called “a blast.” The band now has seven songs written and has self-recorded the majority of them which they give out on a free demo at shows and on their Web site, Though Bike to the Future sometimes plans last-minute shows, one gig the band has planned is one with Spraynard, a band from Pennsylvania. That show is slated for Saturday, Aug. 7, at Coffee Camp. The show will begin at 7 p.m. “We also hope to travel more in the fall. We are trying to play out as much as we can,” said Passino. (Editor’s Note: Bike to the Future can also be

CVPH Medical Center diabetes program earns re-accreditation PLATTSBURGH — The Diabetes Education Center at CVPH Medical Center earned the prestigious American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate for operating a quality diabetes self-management education program. The program was originally recognized in June of 2007. The ADA believes CVPH is offering high-quality education that is an essential component of effective diabetes treatment. The Association’s Education Recognition Certificate assures that educational programs meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education. These standards were developed and tested under the auspices of the National Diabetes Advisory Board in 1983 and were revised by the diabetes community in 1994 and 2000.

Self-management education is an essential component of diabetes treatment. Compliance with the national standards ensures greater consistency in the quality and quantity of education offered to people with diabetes. The participant in an ADA recognized program will be taught, as needed, self-care skills that will promote better management of his or her diabetes treatment regimen. Programs apply for recognition voluntarily. Programs that achieve Recognition status have a staff of knowledgeable health professionals who can provide participants with comprehensive information about diabetes management. “The process gives professionals a national standard by which to measure the quality of services they provide,” said Darcy Reid, CVPH program coordinator. “And, of course, it

assures the consumer that he or she will likely receive highquality service.” Education recognition status is verified by an official certificate from ADA and awarded for three years. All approved education programs cover the following topics as needed: diabetes disease process; nutritional management; physical activity; medications; monitoring; preventing, detecting, and treating acute complications; preventing, detecting, and treating chronic complications through risk reduction; goal setting and problem solving; psychological adjustment; and preconception care, management during pregnancy, and gestational management. For information about the CVPH program, call 562-7326.
