    Please take a few moments to review the finalists' biographies (in their own words), and place your vote for Diabetes Educator of the Year! The winner receives a trip for two down to sunny South Florida for a stay at the luxurious Boca Raton Resort and Club, and is the guest of honor at a special ceremony hosted by ADW Diabetes and the contest sponsors/supporters.
