Northern California Medical Associates (NCMA) is happy to announce the addition of Jennifer Logan, R.D., C.D.E to the NCMA Diabetes Center as their new Certified Diabetes Educator. The NCMA Diabetes center was established in 2016 with plans for expansion to provide additional, comprehensive adult diabetes care for type I and II diabetes, and diabetes from pancreatic insufficiency. The NCMA Diabetes Center has the goal of improving diabetes management and minimizing diabetes complications through a multidisciplinary approach.
NCMA Diabetes Center is under the leadership of Chief Endocrinologist and Diabetes Center Medical Director, Yuichiro D. Nakai, M.D. who has over 10 years in the community helping patients with their diabetes. Over that time, Dr. Nakai has stayed abreast of the latest in available diabetes treatments and has experience with use of all of the current classes of diabetes medications, insulin pump therapy, and continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMS). The goal is to expand on Dr. Nakai’s professional expertise through his supervision of a multidisciplinary team. The team added diabetic nurse specialist Naya Barretto, NP in January 2016 and is excitedly awaiting Jennifer Logan’s addition to the team to further advance diabetes management. We hope to have additional announcements regarding The Diabetes Center in 2017.
Jennifer Logan is joining The Diabetes Center in November 2016 with a comprehensive knowledge and experience in pre-diabetes, diabetes prevention and disease management; she will serve as the center’s senior diabetes educator. Jennifer has been a clinical certified diabetes educator since 2001, serving at Alta Bates Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center and the John Muir Diabetes Center. Jennifer received her degree from California Polytechnic State University, completed her dietetic internship at San Diego State University and is a board member of the local AADE (Association of Diabetic Educators).
The Diabetes Center continues to welcome referrals for diabetes care for doctor/nurse medical management but also welcomes referral for services Jennifer will begin providing in November 2016 including:
- Workshops that cover diabetes basics, appropriate diabetic and weight management nutrition, safe exercise, glucose meter use, insulin use, carbohydrate exchanges/ carbohydrate counting, and additional diabetes topics.
- One-on-One patient diabetes education and nutritional visits.
NCMA is Northern California’s premier provider of medical and surgical care since 1975 and employs the most highly respected primary care physicians and specialists in Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino Counties.
