AADE14 is Here! Time to Refresh. Recharge. Renew.

Aug 5, 2014, 01:00 AM


When I think about what I am most looking forward to at the Annual Meeting, my first thought is what I can learn at the educational sessions and in the exhibit hall.  But, I have to be honest; I am most looking forward to refreshing, recharging and renewing with other diabetes educators. 
We are a great group of people who share a common passion. 

As I reflect on the past annual meetings I have attended, I can think of meeting people in a variety of situations; at the airport, waiting for a session to start, at a reception or social event, and even in line in the ladies’ room! It is amazing how a chance encounter can forge a long-term relationship. 

This week, I look forward to seeing friends and colleagues I have met in the past and to starting new relationships.  If you can come to AADE14, I hope you learn much in the sessions and exhibit hall.  And, I hope you meet and start relationships with other diabetes educators who can become a major part of your professional and personal future.
