Debbie Griffin, FNP-C, CDE, of Paris Community Hospital/Family Medical Center in Paris, Ill., was recently recertified as a diabetes educator by successfully completing the continuing education renewal process.

This demonstrates Griffin’s dedication to her diabetes specialty. It also shows that she “continues to meet a level of contemporary knowledge in diabetes self-management,”  according to the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators.

Griffin has been affiliated with PCH/FMC since 1983. During her tenure at the hospital, she has significantly contributed to the success of the organization’s diabetes education program, which is recognized by the American Diabetes Association.

Upon completing her master’s degree in nursing, Griffin transitioned in early 2012 from her duties as clinical director of the diabetes education program to a family nurse practitioner in the Paris Family Medical Center. In doing so, she maintained her status as a certified diabetes educator.

Griffin is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, American Diabetes Association, American Association of Diabetes Educators and the Edgar County Diabetes Association. She is also an instructor for the American Lung Association.
