Dance Out Diabetes Company Profile

With the problem of diabetes at epidemic proportions, medical professionals and people with diabetes are searching for ways to address a critical yet, missing component of current diabetes prevention and self-care management of diabetes: physical activity. Dance Out Diabetes is the missing link: an innovative, diabetes-friendly program for dance that includes all ages, types of diabetes, and family and friends. Founded by renowned diabetes nurse educator and author, Theresa Garnero, the vision of Dance Out Diabetes is to have FUN while managing health through being active with dance and education. The idea occurred to her after she won an iPod Shuffle at an American Association of Diabetes Educators conference. She returned home and loaded her favorite dance tunes and found herself struggling to stop dancing every morning before work. She wondered how she could combine her love of music, dance and the exciting field of diabetes. The seed for Dance Out Diabetes was formed. Then it was a matter of involving the diabetes community and panel of gifted diabetes care professionals to nurture and grow the organization. - See more at: http://www.danceoutdiabetes.org/about-us/mission/#sthash.W9um5dVq.dpuf
