AADE 2016: 1st Time's a Charm

sisterSTAFF Blog

I arrived in San Diego for the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) Annual Meeting, #AADE16, and immediately went to the special event for the #DSMA Live Twitter Chat “Taking the Online, Offline.” I have never been able to take part in #DSMA before due to commute/schedule/timezone stuff, and haven’t attended AADE before this year, either. But there was no reason to worry – it was an engaging and important kickoff to great diabetes conference.

My First ADA Scientific Sessions

Two weeks ago, Anna and I had the opportunity to attend the American Diabetes Association 76th Scientific Sessions in New Orleans. While our schedules were packed from early morning until late at night, we also managed to a few laps around the exhibit hall to catch some of the latest products (e.g. Dario BG meter, Tresiba long-acting insulin) and even squeeze in some of the scientific sessions.
