Joyce has been with COPC Innovative Diabetes Management since 1999. My role in our office is to contact patients who've been referred to Innovative Diabetes Management and explain the education options available to them. This includes the type of class or visit that is appropriate for them and the time and location options. I also answer general questions that patients might have. I've worked in a medical setting since 1979 and enjoy talking with patients and their family members and helping them get education that will empower them.

As a mom of a person with Type I, I understand the importance of education in the treatment of diabetes. These classes are designed in such a way that learning about the disease and how to manage it is a fun and interactive experience in a supportive environment.
