Title:
Sacred Heart Hospital Adds Diabetes Coordinator

[Allentown, PA] — Sacred Heart Hospital recently named Michele Brinker, RN, BSN as the new Diabetes Program Coordinator for the Hospital and HealthCare System.  Adding a Diabetes Program Coordinator allows people with diabetes increased access to diabetes education services.  Brinker’s goal is to reach out to the people in our community to provide high-quality diabetes education. Diabetes is an example of a highly prevalent health issue within the Sacred Heart Hospital community. The American Diabetes Association reports that compared to non-Hispanic whites, the risk of a diabetes diagnosis is 1.7 times higher among Hispanics/Latinos. 

Brinker holds a BSN from Cedar Crest College and is currently working towards her MSN and diabetes educator certification.  For the past 9 years she has been a diabetes educator designing and implementing a diabetes program for the underserved Hispanic population.  Her 29 years of nursing experience includes critical care, OB/GYN, and family health.  She is also experienced in care coordination and  earned a critical Care RN certificate, a lactation consultant certificate and was a certified Lamaze coach.  She is truly committed to the medical needs, comfort and emotional care of those under her care.
