Sixty nurses from the Socorro Independent School District participated in a daylong training on diabetes at the District Service Center.
The Diabetes Academy, sponsored by Novo Nordisk, showed the medical staff the recent changes in treating the disease.

“We deal with a lot of kids with diabetes,” said Rebecca Madrid, the district’s nurse manager of health services. “We want the nurses to be familiar with the new treatments out there.”

The staff learned everything from the basics of Type I-II diabetes to meal planning.

“The 70 nursing staff members found value in the information. It increased their knowledge about diabetes,” said Cecilia Sheeren, Novo Nordisk representative.

2015 SISD Nurse Diabetes Training3One of the class highlights was watching Chef Doreen Colondres, a well-known chef on Univision and Fox, create healthy meals without sacrificing taste and how to make quick meals in 20 minutes.

The chef, who says cooking is relaxing, healthy and fun, demonstrated a quick meal. It included Peruvian chicken with pearl quinoa and a strawberry spinach salad. The dish also was recreated by Super Chef, a local catering company, and served during lunch.

“Healthy doesn’t mean boring,” Colondres said. “It’s about using fresh ingredients as part of a meal. Anyone can do this.”

Priscilla Hernandez, nurse at James P. Butler Elementary School, said the training was helpful. It gave her perspective on the disease.

“The more educated I can get, the better resource I can be for the teachers, students and staff,” Hernandez said. “I see students with diabetes on a daily basis. This was great training.”
