June Virtual Diabetes CE Event
Join VSP Premier Edge™ Training and Education for a new June Virtual Diabetes CE Event, providing a convenient way for you to increase your practice’s visibility and earn two hours of no-cost COPE-accredited Continuing Education (CE) in one session. Presented by Sherrol Reynolds, OD, FAAO, and Susan Guzman, PhD, this event features two new courses: “The Silent Killers: Diabetes, Hypertension, and Glaucoma” and “Words Matter: Leveraging the Power of Communication in Clinic Visits.”
This event is offered twice in June so you can attend on the date that works best for your schedule. You won’t want to miss it – by attending the entire event, and if your practice has retinal imaging equipment, you will receive the ADA Badge1 to display on your practice’s VSP® Find a Doctor Directory listing on vsp.com. Having the ADA Badge is a powerful way for your practice to stand out and highlight your commitment to connecting vision to the overall health of your patients at risk for or living with diabetes. Practices with the ADA badge saw a 41% increase in clicks from their practice listings detail page on the Find a Doctor Directory to their website or scheduling app.2
Courses included during the event:
New! The Silent Killers: Diabetes, Hypertension, and Glaucoma (One hour of CE credit)
Presented by Sherrol Reynolds, OD, FAAO, this course provides the latest information on silent killer diseases—diabetes, hypertension, and glaucoma. Emphasis will be on the latest in diagnostic modalities and therapeutic advances for each disorder.
New! Words Matter: Leveraging the Power of Communication in Clinic Visits (One hour of CE credit)
Presented by Susan Guzman, PhD, this course covers how to efficiently communicate with diabetes patients in the clinical setting. You will also gain insight into the essential components of effective communication and how it can positively contribute to the overall health and wellbeing of the patient.
Essential Medical Eye Care
Presented by Brittany Howell, VSP Senior Product Manager, this course provides an overview of how VSP streamlined its supplemental medical eye care coverage by creating a single plan, simplifying billing, and increasing availability by making it standard coverage for most VSP patients. You’ll also learn how you can leverage this plan to maximize VSP benefits for your patients with diabetes and other medical eye care needs.

In an As Eye See It blog, “The Diabetes Epidemic: How ODs Can Make a Real Difference,” Jeffry Gerson, OD, shares the importance of keeping up to date on the latest diabetes education and how the ADA Badge shows your practice’s commitment to providing the best possible care for your patients at risk for or living with diabetes. Throughout 2022, Dr. Gerson partnered with Premier Edge Training and Education to host virtual diabetes education events so participants could immediately implement these learnings in their practice.
