Ugh. Sometimes I hate being in Canada. Most of the time I love my country, but when it comes to DOC things and advocacy work, USA is MILES ahead of this place. I wish I had a job that got me to places like AADE.

DSMA (Diabetes Social Media Advocacy) is also hosting a d-meet-up next week. Sighhhh. I will miss y'all!

DECA (the Diabetes Education Camping Association) is holding a Train the Educator session at AADE next week in Philly. Here's an email from Shelly Yeager about the session:

If you're a HCP you should go.

DTreat Trainer Program for Healthcare Practitioners
The Diabetes Education and Camping Association and Camp Educators COI, an official Community of Interest of the American Association of Diabetes Educators, are making plans to host a seminar to orient educators on the successful "DTreat" model for young adults - a retreat engaging the young adult community with healthcare partners. 
The seminar will be held on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 from 1 - 4 PM at "The Hub" meeting room across the street from the Philadelphia Convention Center at AADE.
If you are interested in learning more, please email info@diabetescamps.org by Wednesday afternoon, July 29, 2013.  We only have room for the first 30 interested people.
Please forward this message to anyone you feel might be interested.

  1. I completely agree! There isn't a whole lot going on in Canada let alone Alberta. It's actually probably cheaper for me to go to something in the states than in Toronto.

  2. Oh so true!! And then there is small town Alberta which is even worse :-(

  3. We sure miss you guys, too! Wish it were cheaper and easier to get everyone closer. :-(

  4. I totally understand. Sure we have to take a three hour flight just to visit our Endo!
