AADE's Face Lift

Apr 27, 2016, 16:12 PM


ave you stopped in to check out the AADE website recently? got a face lift! The website has been updated to be easy for all of us to use. Think about spending a few minutes clicking around on the site to familiarize yourself with what AADE has to offer.

When you first open, you will see the new look. It is bright and easy to read. Across the top toolbar, there are categories including: Find a Diabetes EducatorMY AADE NETWORKOnline StoreAnnual MeetingAbout AADE, and Join AADE. Each of these areas is open to the public with the exception of MY AADE NETWORK, a private online community for AADE members.

The front page also has big, easy to read spaces with news scrolling on the top; a middle section with links to key areas, currently including Education & EventsFind a Diabetes EducatorProgram Accreditation2016-2018 Strategic PlanVolunteer with AADE, and BC-ADM Certification.

The next section down brings you to Practice Tools & Resources and Patient Resources (check this section out to see how a person with diabetes [PWD] can find an educator and some resources specifically for the PWD).

What I am impressed by is the ease of navigation with a quick scroll down the page, bringing you to so many important areas and only having to click once to get into those areas.

Keep scrolling down and you will find AADE News and Education & Events. Below that, you will see AADE Blogs and MY AADE Network Blogs; and then the Diabetes Educator VideoPatient Tip Sheets, and AADE 24/7.

At the bottom of the page, you will find Connect with AADE, where you can go to MY AADE NETWORK (but you can now get here with one easy click from the top of the page, too), our social media links, and the site map and AADE contact information.

What I am impressed by is the ease of navigation with a quick scroll down the page, bringing you to so many important areas and only having to click once to get into those areas.

Most recently, MY AADE NETWORK was updated to match the same, easy navigation format. This used to be an area I struggled with, feeling that I had to click several times to get to the right spot and, once there, to scroll to the bottom of the page to finally log in. Now, go to the top center of the main page, click on MY AADE NETWORK, see the welcome with key areas of interest, and the login to the right of those sections. Once you have logged in, you will find the same ease of navigation as you scroll down the page, enjoy the nice graphics, and use one click to get in to the many areas of OUR AADE NETWORK.

When you get a minute (and, that is really all it will take), stop in to the new AADE website and the updated MY AADE NETWORK. I think you will like what you find. While you are there, read through some of the recent blogs! I think you will enjoy what you see.
