Food for Life Instructor Nancy Rodriguez, R.N., B.S.N., C.D.E.

Nancy is a licensed registered nurse in Illinois. She received her bachelor of science in nursing from Lewis University. She earned her specialty as a certified diabetes educator (CDE) from the National Certification Board of Diabetes Educators. Nancy currently works as a diabetes nurse clinician at a center that is recognized as a Diabetes Education Accredited Program. She is founder, CEO, and director of Latino Instruction in Diabetes to Empower and Reduce risks (LIDERr) Wellness Foundation, a non-profit education organization. Nancy also received the Hispanic Heritage Award and was nominated for Nursing Excellence for her community service. Her mission is to educate, equip, and empower underserved families, especially with Spanish-language and financial barriers, with the knowledge to prevent and reverse chronic diseases like diabetes, through low-fat, plant-food diets and lifestyle modifications.

Why did you become a Food for Life instructor?

"I do this in honor of my mother Elizabeth and underserved Latino families, especially Spanish-speaking children who are twice as likely to develop diabetes!"

My mother's quote: "Si, Se puede, primero Dios." Yes, it's possible, with God.

Here is what class attendees are saying…

“These classes have really made a huge difference in my overall diabetes and well-being. I not only feel more energy, sleep better, and was taken off all my diabetes medications. I have also lowered my A1c from 10.8 to 5.7% my triglycerides from 306 mg/dL to 59, and lost 60 pounds after 4 months.” 
    -Carlos Angeles, Chicago, IL

"After 3 months on the program, I have both lost 10 pounds and my blood sugar is controlled after dropping an average of 100 points. My doctor said I could get off all my insulin injections and my A1c is at normal level."
    -Roberto Elguea, Chicago, IL
