You Have an Opportunity to Make a Difference

Nearly 10% of our population has diabetes and 86 million have pre-diabetes – numbers which are expected to continue to rise annually. Over the next 10 years, 14% of all health care spending will be attributed to diabetes & pre-diabetes. Research shows that effective diabetes education is linked to lower patient costs and improved clinical results.


What Do You Need to Succeed?


"Becoming a certified diabetes educator was overwhelming when I first began working. AADE helped me connect with CDEs on the local, state, and national levels who helped guide me in my preparation for the exam. AADE also provided a wealth of resources such as the Diabetes Education Review Guide. These tools were practical and up-to-date which helped me feel confident the day of my exam. Not only has AADE helped me become a CDE, they have also equipped me with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide quality care to my patients."

- Chelsea Johns, RD, CDE, LDN


"AADE has been a valuable support and resource for me as I transitioned into my new role as a diabetes educator. Access to the professional resources such as the Career Path Program, webinars, and publications not only helped me build a solid foundation but continues to advance my growth."
