Congratulations to PCH Nurse Practitioner Mark Shah, winner of the WA and Australian Credential Diabetes Educator of the Year awards 2021.
Mark, a Diabetes Nurse Practitioner, started his nursing career 23 years ago and has been working as a Credential Diabetes Educator (CDE) since 2003.
Mark cares for children with all diabetes types, particularly youth onset type 2 diabetes where he is also collaborating on several studies.
In his role, he quickly learned about the optimism of technology, new treatments, and the everyday struggles of living with diabetes.
He said it is a great honour to be named CDE of the year for WA and Australia.
“I thank all my colleagues for the nomination. All CDEs are strong advocates for people living with diabetes and I am proud that this award is an endorsement of the care and advocacy I provide every day,” said Mr Shah.
Congratulations Mark on the well-deserved awards and thank you for your contribution to the diabetes community.
