Louise Whitney, a Sparrow Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, goes above and beyond to help patients manage their diabetes and reach their nutritional goals.
As a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, Louise counsels patients on the necessary lifestyle changes involved in a diabetes diagnosis, including nutrition, medication, and glucose testing. Helping patients reach their goals is what gives Louise joy, and sometimes that even means raising money for a patient’s broken insulin pump, which she did for one patient.
“If somebody needs help, you’re going to do everything you can to get the help to them,” says Louise. “I tell all of my patients how glad I am that they took the time to come see me because if they didn’t, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to learn how I can help.”
Louise goes above and beyond to provide the best possible care for every patient she encounters. That’s one reason Louise is this month’s Caregiver Spotlight.
