The American Association of Diabetes Educators’ 28th Annual Conference was held this year in Louisville, Kentucky, from August 16 to 19. It drew quite a crowd—3,200 attendees, a record number for the association. A total of 215 companies made appearances, displaying both new and tried-and-true products. The AADE announced its educator of the year, Gail Lorenzi, RN, CDE, and Diabetes Health conducted its yearly raffle—$1,500 to the first prize winner! Connie Gilbert, RD, MS, CDE, of the Methodist Medical Group in Indianapolis, Indiana, walked away with the check.
