Diabetes Management Team

Karla Saffer, RN, BSN has coordinated the Diabetes Education program since 2010. Working in conjunction with all care providers at the Wray Clinic, she educates patients who are newly diagnosed with diabetes as well as supports patients in their ongoing effort to maintain control of their diabetes. Support management allows Karla to be the contact for patients who have questions or concerns that may not necessarily require a doctor’s visit, but attention to the issue is needed. She teaches group classes as well as collaborates with the WRAC, the CSU Extension Office and Encore Life in health and wellness promotion.
Lori Smith, RD is the hospital dietician and provides nutritional counseling for those with diabetes and other nutritional education needs. She is active in providing healthy cooking classes and consultation throughout the Wray community.

Karla and Lori have worked together to achieve and maintain accreditation of the program through the American Association of Diabetes Educators since April, 2011.
