Please join us in congratulating the 2020 Texas Diabetes Care and Education Specialist of the Year, Barbara Kocurek, PharmD, BCPS, CDCES, FAADE

Barb started volunteering for AADE in the late 90s when there were very few pharmacists in diabetes education. She likes being an ADCES leader as “it allows me to be part of a group that is passionate, inspiring, and dedicated to improving the care and quality of life for people with diabetes.” Barb is committed “to be a collaborative and supportive leader who aligns education and clinical practices so that patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes receive value based care that optimizes their chances to live happy healthy lives.” Barb has been instrumental in the growth and increasing member engagement of the ADCES community in Texas. She has been a mentor to so many developing diabetes care and education specialists. Barb states “she is honored to receive this award and be part of this community.”

Congrats Barb and thank you for your service!
