Diabetes Self Management Education Program

In February 2020, the prestigious American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Program was awarded to the Hummingbird Diabetes Program at Janai Meyer, Nutrition & Lactation, LLC, for consistent and quality diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES).  

“I have always found myself drawn to the Southeast Alaska tribes’ stories of the hummingbird. So the Hummingbird Diabetes Program was born. The Hummingbird Diabetes Program is a partnership between people living with diabetes, their family and primary providers.

Southeast Alaska Native Culture tells stories of the hummingbird as a messenger of peace, healing body, and soul while providing guidance through life’s challenges. This is my offering to my community.”

CLIENT STORIES - A Gem

I had been suffering from extreme diarrhea. Test after test, no one could figure out what was going on or how to control it. I was referred to Janai. After a few visits, she told me about “Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. None of my doctors have heard of it. In fact, they had me taking probiotics. That just made matters worse. Because of Janai’s education, background, listening to her clients, and caring, she was able to help me guide my doctors, and my symptoms improved. Janai goes out of her way to care for and help her clients. She is fantastic, caring, easy to talk to, genuinely cares about each client.
