- Children with Diabetes exhibited at the 25th Annual Meeting and Educational Program of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. It was nice to hear first-hand the compliments of nurses, dietitians, and many other health professionals who knew us already, and to share our thoughts and dreams with them.
From our exhibit, we were able to share the website with hundreds of diabetes educators from around the world and handed out thousands of our web site address cards and our new brochures. Our cards and brochures are free to anyone who needs them.
In the next few weeks, we hope to welcome many new kids and parents to our website, as well as many diabetes educators who first learned of Children with Diabetes at the meeting! We'll also be posting information about new products we found while walking the show floor.
