Given the prevalence of diabetes in the
State of Qatar, there is a need for health
care providers who are specifically trained
in Diabetes Education to help patients
better manage this disease. Graduates
may find employment in public and private
hospitals, as well as in organizations
which treat and/or prevent diabetes and
aim to reduce adverse health behaviors
in patients and the wider population
(e.g., Hamad Medical Corporation, Sidra
Medicine, and Primary Health Care).
