Enrich Your Professional Development: Volunteer as CE Reviewer

Oct 06, 2017

Each year AADE provides courses and materials for diabetes educators to earn continuing education (CE) credits. To continue providing our members with the ability to earn CE and fulfill their respective license requirements, we need your help to review the educational content of 2018 Live and Self-Study CE activities. The educational content of these diabetes-related activities need to be reviewed by healthcare professional peer reviewers.

As a volunteer peer reviewer, you will ensure that these continuing education activities are of high quality and comply with the standards of the organizations that accredit AADE to provide CE. Enrich your professional development, while ensuring the integrity of AADE education programs.

Reviewing an activity takes approximately one to two hours each, and reviewers are asked to commit to a minimum of two to five hours per month. For each activity, reviewers will receive an email with the details and if you are interested, you can reply with your availability to review.

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, visit the AADE Get Involved page and click “I’m Interested” next to CE Application Reviewer.
