From Aug 6th – 9th the American Diabetes Wholesale along side with Dr Kim Mistiszyn & Marlene Koch attended the 2008 AADE annual conference in Washington DC. It was a great experience for us to learn more about the new technologies and advances that were displayed and discussed by all the companies who were exhibiting. Some of our favorites include the EatSmart Nutritional Scale, the new Medifridge II, and some of the new continuous glucose monitoring systems. This was the second year that we attended the AADE annual conference. It was a pleasure to have our Destination Diabetes Nutritional Advisor – Marlene Koch there to give away several copies of her 375 Sensational Splenda Recipes book: Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat, and Calories.
Over 3,000 healthcare professional dedicated to diabetes flew in from around the country to learn more about diabetes. ADW was warmly welcomed by many of them who stopped by our booth, it was great to see so many diabetes educators passionate to learn more about treating diabetes. I personally met with several hundred and discussed ways in which ADW can assist them in their efforts to help their patients manage diabetes.
We also launched our 2nd annual Diabetes Educator of the Year contest at the conference. This was a perfect place to introduce our contest to the healthcare professionals who work hard everyday fighting diabetes. If you feel your educator is deserving of this award please vote today!
