November is American Diabetes Month®
November is American Diabetes Month, a time to communicate the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of prevention and control. For years, the American Diabetes Association has used this month as an opportunity to raise awareness of the disease and its serious complications. In 2009, the Association launched a national movement to Stop Diabetes with the audacious goal of gathering support from millions of Americans to help confront, fight and most importantly, stop diabetes. People are encouraged to join the movement to get involved by sharing, acting, learning and giving. You can help – the future is in your hands. This movement will continue in force in 2013.
42nd Annual Symposium on Diabetes for Health Care Professionals
This one day symposium on diabetes is designed for clinical and home care setting health professionals. After attending the symposium, participants will be able to discuss insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and pre-diabetes. They will also be able to identify successful strategies for weight loss maintenance and describe the applications of currently available continuous monitoring technology.
School Walk for Diabetes
School Walk for Diabetes is a K-12 educational fund-raising program that teaches students the benefits of healthy living, community service and school spirit while raising money for the American Diabetes Association. Through the program, children learn life-long lessons about diabetes and making healthy choices, such as eating good-for-you foods and exercising every day. School Walk for Diabetes helps to fund essential programs aimed at finding a cure for diabetes, preventing its onset and improving the lives of all those affected by diabetes.
Professional Education and CE Credits
The American Diabetes Association provides professional education activities and courses that focus on the latest in basic and clinical research. These activities offer educational opportunities, as well as the chance to network with colleagues. They are designed to reach a wide audience of health care providers including diabetologists, researchers, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, psychologists, and podiatrists as well as international physicians and researchers.
The American Diabetes Association conducts professional education activities in support of its overall mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. It is the Association's belief that the quality of treatment received by the person with diabetes is directly dependent upon the education and expertise of his or her health care team.
American Diabetes Association Family Link®
Connecticut/Western Massachusetts is a community based network of parent volunteers who have children and teenagers with diabetes. We provide information and services including advocacy, education and social events to families living with diabetes throughout the area. We are dedicated to strengthening relationships between children with diabetes, their families, their diabetes care team and their school and improving education and awareness.
The American Diabetes Association is your child's advocate in the school system. Our Family Link Program will be able to help with issues such as forms your school may require for your child and information for your child's teacher and school about diabetes.
If you are interested in participating in any of our Family Link events or are looking for more information, please contact Louise Butcher at 203-639-0385 ext. 3532 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The American Diabetes Association is pleased to provide access to our research grant database. This database will allow you to search for useful information on Association-funded research grant awardees.
The database also provides brief descriptions of each project, as well as a "Researcher Profile" section where the investigator is given the opportunity to explain how his/her study is important to the field of diabetes research. Database contents are updated at least every six months.
We hope that you will find this new resource to be an easy way to learn more about the American Diabetes Association's research program, and the important work being done through the generous donations of our supporters.
Stop Diabetes is the movement to end the devastating toll that diabetes takes on the lives of our families, friends and neighbors in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. It will inspire and mobilize the general public, volunteers, donors, corporations and the scientific and medical communities to rally around our cause and our call to "Share, act, learn and give."
Through these actions, millions will have the chance to get involved and raise awareness, promote healthy living, and raise dollars to fund education, and critical research that will one day Stop Diabetes once and for all.
