These shall consist of at least nine active status Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (CDCESs) to include at least two registered nurses, two registered dietitians/dietitian nutritionists, one pharmacist, one provider (MD, DO, PA, NP), and one “other” professional. The additional two members can come from any discipline.
