12 attendees, 7 dietitians and 5 RN’s from the Mercy One DM center’s Satellite centers (7)and main center located in Mason City Iowa. This group all had experience teaching diabetes classes in their clinics. Most of their classes are quite small, about four patients at a time. They used the International Diabetes Center’s curriculum over a total of four weeks two hours each class. They were interested in trying the maps as a way of improving engagement of their patients and increasing their numbers of graduates. One of the 12 participants did not pre-register. Her name is Kristi Zwiefel. She is an RD, LD. Her address is 2486 Virginia Parkeay in Webster City Iowa 50595 Phone: 641-648-7052. Her email is They were concerned that the need for increased conversation in the map group would cut out their time teaching and that the patients would not value a class where they did more talking than the “teacher”. I asked them to suspend pre-judgement and let the patients experience the maps and then give them feedback on how much they felt they learned. They will want Spanish maps for several of their clinics. 4 of them need maps and guides sent and they all need Map 4 guides. I talked up Map4 Health digital platform and left them with the literature to give their docs and directors and encouraged them to find out more by calling HI.
