My First ADA Scientific Sessions

sisterSTAFF Blog

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.

Impressions from the ADA Scientific Sessions

Last month, Sarah (our Director of Operations) and I attended the 76th American Diabetes Association (ADA) Scientific Sessions in New Orleans, LA. I’m not certain the city of New Orleans was ready for a crowd of thousands - eager to participate in sessions, learn about the latest technology (Meters, Insulin pumps, and Continuous glucose monitors, oh my!), and listen to clinical trial results – but ADA was ready, and they did not disappoint with the wealth of knowledge we received.

Last month, I was invited to participated in Diabetes Hands Foundation’s Masterlab sessions, held during the Friends for Life Conference in Orlando, FL. While Diabetes Hands Foundation paid for my registration and a portion of my travel and lodging through a scholarship, my synopsis reflects my personal views, opinions and experiences while there.

Reflections

I write this post as moving men are packing up my house in North Carolina. Tomorrow, they will load everything onto a truck and drive it to Chicago, where my family and I will start a new chapter in our lives. I've known about this move for several months, and yet, I still do not feel completely ready. I keep thinking about what I am leaving behind: friends and neighbors, familiarity, and community. Leaving this place I have called home for the last six years is daunting. There are so many moving parts: selling a home, purchasing another, arranging travel, working. It's overwhelming.
