We have an informative year ahead of us including another trip to Pero Farms, legislative/licensure/insurance/reimbursement information, the opportunity to get your Medical Errors CEU requirement for licensure renewal  and scholarship money available for a trip to Washington DC as well as Tallahassee for legislative workshops.  Your membership dues will pay for all these activities and CEU credits, but more importantly, it is an opportunity for you to network and stay connected with your peers! 

So join us on Tuesday, September 16 at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport (150 Australian Ave) for our first meeting.   

Please see the Join Us/Membership link to the left for the new membership forms, or just show up at the meeting.  If you are unable to attend the first meeting, the memberships can be mailed in, or you can bring to the October meeting.  I look forward to getting connected with you this year!

Action Alert - National Diabetes Clinical Care Commission Act

The Academy needs all members to support the National Diabetes Clinical Care Commission Act (H.R. 1074).  This bill solves the problem of dispersed, uncoordinated federal entities working on diabetes issues and establishes a commission to make recommendations for better coordination to leverage federal programs for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes.  The commission, which will include clinical dietitians and other expert practitioners, would also determine how the government could support clinicians in providing high quality care to people with diabetes.

To read more about H.R. 1074 click here.    
Please ask your member of Congress to support the National Diabetes Clinical Care Commission Act (H.R. 1074).
