Greenbrier Medical Arts Pharmacy gets AADE Accreditation for 2016


Greenbrier Medical Arts Pharmacy is working to educate diabetes patients all over Greenbrier County.

A pharmacist in their organization earned Certified Diabetes Educator credentials again for 2016. After having 1,000 patient contact hours and taking a board exam, Amy Jasperse works with patients teaching them the best way to manage their diabetes. 

“I very strongly believe that it needs to be a collaborative effort between the physicians, the patient, and whoever the educator is. To try to give them the education that they need to help them live a long, healthy life with diabetes,” says Jasperse. 

She teaches her patients everything from proper diet to reading and understanding A1C and other numbers.
