Diabetes 101 from the PWD Perspective
Speaker: Eileen R.DeLeeuw, MS,RD,CDE
Eileen is a certified diabetes educator and registered dietitian. She graduated with a BS in Medical Dietetics from Brigham Young University and received her Masters from Utah State University, doing research on diabetes nutritional care and education. She has worked (part time) in diabetes care and education for 38 years. Currently, she she does Diabetes Self-management Training with her company, Real Life Diabetes, LLC, and at Birch Family Pharmacy in Tooele. She has just joined the Tooele County Health Department EPICC team as a consultant. She has served in leadership positions in diabetes organizations. Eileen has had diabetes for 50 years and has been able to do everything she and her parents were told at her diagnosis that she would not, including having 5 children and, now, 11 grandchildren. She is married to Wayne DeLeeuw who has been very supportive of her diabetes efforts and interests, to the point of developing Type 2 himself! Eileen is a strong advocate for persons with and at risk for diabetes developing their own approach to self-management. She says that any of the old style dietitians who make it to heaven will be standing in a long line apologizing to former “patients” for the rigid and inflexible approaches to diabetes treatment of the past! She celebrates the many advances in diabetes treatment and self-management she has seen and hopes yet to see.
