Deann Blake, RN, BSN, CDE,
has been the KVH Diabetes Self-Management Program Educator and Coordinator since 2013. The program focuses on empowering patients with a new diagnosis or
change in their diabetes to receive self-care information and support that is so crucial to their success.
Deann and her husband have been married for 28 years. They have three children and a delightful 3 year old granddaughter, and also share their lives with four godchildren. She loves staying active in the outdoors with biking or hiking, and as a regular Observatory Hill walker Ė rain or shine.
"Thereís a saying: People donít care how much you know, until they know how much you care. Iíve found that to be true. Itís a privilege to share in my patients lives and when I make listening a priority, I am often the one who is being taught!"
