Dino P. Pierce, CFT, CPT, RD, CDE, currently works as a dietitian, sports nutritionist, diabetes educator and weight loss/weight management specialist at KRMC's Del E. Webb Wellness and Rehabilitation Center. Here, he demonstrates the effects of insulin using a door as a prop during a free Diabetes Seminar he held Tuesday night concerning "Natural Glucose Lowering Aids." The Diabetes support group meets at the Del Webb Wellness Center the last Tuesday of every month. Pierce is also the author of a new book, "The Diabetes Handbook: Create Awareness and a New You." Dino uses his experiences counseling patients, athletes, and a variety of clients as well as his contagious enthusiasm to help individuals "overcome their mountains" by equipping them for success. The handbook is a reference tool for diabetics when trying to understand the multitude of aspects related to diabetes. Pierce states that the book is straightforward and informative while leaving out all of the labyrinthine medical terminology, and is available for $19.95 at the Del E Webb Wellness & Rehabilitation Center.
