SAN DIEGO — In this video exclusive, Endocrine Today Diabetes in Real Life columnist Susan Weiner, MS, RDN, CDE, CDN, speaks with 2016 AADE President Hope Warshaw, MMSc, RD, CDE, BC-ADM, FAADE, about the challenges facing diabetes educators today and the organization’s 3-year strategic plan for addressing those challenges.

Diabetes educators need to raise awareness of their services with primary care providers and people with diabetes. “We need a direct-to-consumer campaign, just like the pharmaceutical industry uses,” Warshaw said. She discusses two of the seven points in the strategic plan: increasing access to diabetes self-management training and integrating new models of care with that training.
