Why is it important to be ADCES (Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists) Accredited? 

The accreditation means that our team has proven that it meets and upholds the 10 National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management and Support (DSMES). These standards are agreed upon jointly by the ADAADCES and CMS. Synergy’s diabetes program has held the ADCES accreditation since 2016 and is excited to have recently announced its team of diabetes educators are now certified and currently administering Medtronic and Omnipod insulin pumps to patients with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Our team are educators, but also more importantly we operate as a support system as we walk alongside clients through their diabetes journey.

​Our comprehensive diabetes education program includes individual and group sessions.  In order to receive the most individualized education and support possible, we encourage all participants to attend at least 1 individual session before the start of groups.  To enroll, ask your physician to fax a referral for comprehensive diabetes education to Synergy at 541-323-3483 or call us if you have any questions.

The program is covered by most insurance companies including Medicare and Oregon Health Plans.
