To guide professional practice in promoting healthy lifestyles through self-management of diabetes and related conditions
GAADE sends out many news items to AADE members like meeting announcements through the new My AADE network. If you are not receiving these announcements through your email you may not have “subscribed” yet . Besides receiving news, members can send out questions or comments by starting a group “discussion” and receive state wide announcements. Here are three documents that will help get you started with using My AADE network.
