AADE president outlines challenges, strategies for promoting diabetes education

In this 5 minute video exclusive, Endocrine Today Diabetes in Real Life columnist Susan Weiner, MS, RDN, CDE, CDN, speaks with Hope about the challenges facing diabetes educators today and AADE’s 3-year strategic plan for addressing those challenges. 

Warshaw suggests that diabetes educators need to raise awareness of their services with primary care providers and people with diabetes. “We need a direct-to-consumer campaign, just like the pharmaceutical industry uses,” Warshaw said. She discusses two of the seven points in the AADE current strategic plan: increasing access to diabetes self-management training and integrating new models of care with that training.
