Committed to providing state-of-the-art, individualized care for children, adolescents and adults with diabetes, Winthrop recently hosted �Integration of Emerging Technology into Diabetes Education,� a hands-on program designed to challenge Winthrop�s Certified Diabetes Educators to use existing and emerging technology when teaching patients about diabetes self-management. Presented by Marcia Draheim, RN, CDE, Past President of the American Association of Diabetes Educators and President of Draheim Dimensional Presentations, the program�s pragmatic focus helped Winthrop�s Diabetes Educators develop ways to integrate emerging and existing technology into their diabetes education services. Organized through the Winthrop Diabetes and Obesity Institute, the program�s participants included Certified Diabetes Educators from Winthrop�s Diabetes Education Center as well as members of Winthrop�s Pediatric Diabetes Education Program, Cardiovascular Medical Associates� Diabetes Education Program, Winthrop�s Division of Endocrinology Comprehensive Center for Diabetes Care, and the Hospital-wide Insulin Safety Committee.
