AADE Diabetes Research

The aim of AADE research is to critically examine the value that diabetes educators and diabetes education add to improved clinical measures, enhanced patient outcomes, and reduced medical costs. The association pursues research opportunities to contribute to the evidence base; expand opportunities for diabetes educators; and improve member awareness, comprehension, and analysis of relevant scientific information.
