We recently attended the American Association of Diabetes Educators show in St. Louis, MO. The importance of educators in the world of diabetes is crucial. From attending the show, we saw first hand how dedicated these educators are to their profession. Some traveled across the country in order to attend this trade show, just so they could gain more information resources to help out their patients.

Being that these educators work so hard to help their patients manage their diabetes, we decided that here at ADW Diabetes we will reward them for their hard work and dedication. We have established a “Diabetes Educator of the Year” award with the grand prize of a 3 day, 2 night stay at the ultra-luxorious Boca Raton Resort and Club.

Having good knowledge and understanding of the disease of diabetes is one of the first steps in order to manage it. We are constantly working hard in order to keep the management of diabetes affordable. There is a dire need to spread the word of diabetes self-management, but the financial situations of a lot of people with diabetes do not allow them to test as often as they need to.

Somebody needs to be there to stand up for the diabetic patients who are in need of discounted prices of their supplies. Many Diabetes Educators are working with American Diabetes Wholesale to help their patients maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. By working as a team we can help reach every diabetic who has at one time or another said, “I can’t test today, I only have one left, and no more money to buy more strips.”

We can’t wait to attend the next show to see all of the dedicated educators again. We love how much they care about their professions and their patients; not only just their patients but all diabetics, and diabetes in general. We promise to continue to strive to help everyone who is affected by diabetes and make sure we keep diabetes management affordable.
