Dive into DANA!

Aug 16, 2018, 12:46 PM

I expect you have heard about AADE’s Diabetes Advanced Network Access (DANA). We are so excited about this benefit that is free to members. It gives us the ability to go to one place for all of our diabetes-related technology needs.

DANA has:

  • Resources on devices and mobile apps related to diabetes with research and reviews to help choose the right device or app for you or an individual with diabetes.
  • Education and device training on diabetes-related technology. I signed up for a free on-demand webinar on CGM.
  • Opportunities to participate in innovation-shaping research.
  • Evidence-based research and information.

You may have dipped your toe in by logging into DANA and doing an overview, maybe you haven’t had the chance yet — now is the time to dive into DANA!

If you are coming to or are already at AADE18 in Baltimore, be sure to attend some of the educational sessions on technology and DANA and stop by the AADE booth for a demo and to experience the DANA Tech Lab. If you are not in Baltimore, go onto the DANA website and sign in to cruise through the many valuable features on your own.

With one-stop shopping for all your diabetes-based technology needs, DANA will be a game-changer. Check it out now and let me know what you think in the comments below!
