The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) announces the addition of Diabetes Resource Connection as an online resource service for its members. 
 
“Diabetes Resource Connection offers a single place for AADE members to find a full array of unbiased, diabetes and other product resources, easy to search and easy to order, all at no cost,” said AADE Chief Executive Officer Lana Vukovljak. “Having it all in one place will be a big time saver.”
 
Resources include over 10,000 patient education materials, product coupons, samples and vouchers, product information and a variety of patient assistance programs for each product. They represent over 1,200 commercially available products, covering classes both within and outside of diabetes care. AADE materials will also be readily accessible through Diabetes Resource Connection.
 
AADE members will also have the ability to connect with industry and peers, participate in market research and easily find clinical trials suitable for their patients by searching the largest U.S. clinical trial database with an easy-to-use search interface. 
 
Founded in 1973, AADE  is a multi-disciplinary professional membership organization dedicated to improving diabetes care through education. With more than 12,000 professional members including physicians, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and others, AADE has a vast network of practitioners involved in the daily treatment of diabetes patients. Collectively, our alliances, member practitioner networks, and academic partners uniquely position AADE at the locus of change for the future treatment of diabetes.
 
Healthcare Resources Online has designed this platform to be used by professional associations, a naturally trusted, resource-based and educational environment, to promote better communication, information exchange and ultimately better utilization of resources with patients.
