Review for SSEP, Fountain Vly, CA, USA
As a registered dietitian as well as a certified diabetes educator I have worked with SSEP for nearly 10 years on various occassions related to my work. Initially I became aware of them due to word of mouth as their being the "experts" in working with pregnancy and all levels of diabetes. I contacted them and they answered their phone and all my questions. I have since called them on several occassions over the years to gather information, supplies and ask questions. They have always answered their phone and have always been eager to assist. At a prior job a few years ago to were very helpful in getting the group of diabetes educators where I was employed certificated in their Sweet Success GDM program. They arranged for us all -- about 12- to take their program and test as a group for minimal cost. They could have made much more money forcing each of us to purchase all the materials. We got our certificated in a timely basis and everyone got loads of education credits as well. I purchased many materials from them over the years to assist me in working with the Mom's with diabetes. I have found their information to be very user friedly, copy ready and well organized in order to allow someone like myself to quickly make use of it. They periodically send me updates on their program and never ask for money. I feel they are one of the most "family like" groups I have ever dealt with in my 30 year plus career. I recommend to others and brag bout them if I ever have an opportunity. I sincerely believe that our future in this world is dependent on the mothers and their babies and our focus in our system needs to be help them stay strong and healthy and capable of self care at all cost. SSEP is helping save our future through their work with all those of us that guide the mother's and babies as needs arise. I have never had a negative experiece with SSEP through the years. They are not only cutting edge but they are like family and truly care about the future of our families!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Using materials they market as well as taking their course to become certified in the care of pregnancy with diabetes. TEaching expectant mother's how to control their glucose, weight, eat properly what to expect etc.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Let more people know about them and hope their can presenst their program closer to my home so I can attend. Make their information available electronically.
