AADE works to advance policies that support the work of the diabetes educator, reinforce the critical importance of diabetes education, and remove barriers that may affect a person with diabetes from self-managing their diabetes. We support our members as they engage in state and federal initiatives to advocate for people with diabetes and the important role of the diabetes educator in the delivery of diabetes care.
