Saru is a diabetes educator trainee at the Sitaram Bhartia Hospital in Delhi. She attended the first Project HOPE diabetes education Master Trainer Training Course in September. "Attending the course was a real pleasure as it lead to self- assessment and a plan for improvement," she said. As a result of the course, Saru has helped train seven groups of diabetes educators, putting new principals in diabetes care into practice. "I am now meeting with the diabetes educators to ensure that the patients' concerns are addressed first. Also, we are doing a project on carbohydrate counting, and in the coming weeks we are going to work on the role of diabetes educators in foot care," she said. "There are lots of changes that we will make in our training program as a result of this course."
