Kellie Antinori-Lent, MSN, RN, ACNS-BC, BC-ADM, CDCES, FADCES was officially recognized last week at the meeting of the board of directors as the 2020 president of the newly rebranded Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists (ADCES).
The former American Association of Diabetes Educators is now the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists (ADCES). The rebranding reflects the association’s shift from referencing the specialty title as “diabetes educator” to the more comprehensive “diabetes care and education specialist.” The new title more accurately signifies the range of expertise diabetes care and education specialists provide to people with diabetes, prediabetes and cardiometabolic conditions, the health care system, payers and providers.
The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) have partnered to release a new tool kit that guides healthcare professionals in the implementation of a professional continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) program within their health systems.
he Donna Tomky Award for Excellence in Clinical Practice will recognize a nurse practitioner who continues to advance the integration of self-management behaviors with clinical management through practice, health plan or health system innovation. The recipient will receive up to $1,000 in travel and complimentary registration to the AADE annual conference.
