Kris Swenson and Betty Brackenridge

Diabetes Training 101 Inc.™ was established in 2014 to continue the vision of “Making a Difference in Diabetes” pioneered by Kris Swenson, RN, CDE and Betty Brackenridge, MS, RD, CDE of Diabetes Management and Training Centres of Phoenix, Arizona.

Kris and Betty are diabetes educators who have spent a lot of years (over fifty years between them) listening to their patients.

“We’ve built our programs on what we’ve learned from people who live with this disese and from the best today’s science has to offer. Our patients tell us that living their REAL life and learning through Discovery, learning what works and what needs tweaking, is key to achieving long-term control of their diabetes.”

Michelle has worked as a diabetes educator for over 15 years where she has witnessed how the Discovering Diabetes™ program makes a difference in the lives of people living with diabetes. She has trained extensively under both Kris and Betty and has taken over delivering their vision of Making a Difference in Diabetes in Canada. She is passionate about helping people learn to make a difference in their diabetes outcomes using their own life experiences to guide their journey!
