The EndoGoddess recently won a gold medal this past weekend. Well, not exactly a gold medal, but rather a golden moment at last weekend's American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) Annual Meeting in Indianapolis. In a popular session on the power of social media for diabetes educators called "Power Your Practice In Our Socially Networked World' advocates Hope Warshaw, Manny Hernandez, David Edelman, and Amy Tenderich, the EndoGoddess App was mentioned as a great source for helping patients (and diabetes educators) navigate how to get involved in social media.
In the above app screenshot, upon opening the medical content button on the bottom toolbar, the 'Get Involved' tab gives instruction on how to participate in weekly twitter chats such as #dsma as well as listing several popular diabetes blogs and online communities. The session and the meeting are nicely summarized here with a few notable tweets as follows:
I am proud that the EndoGoddess App offers value to certified diabetes educators (CDEs) who can provide the app as resource to their patients which then opens the door to them and the healing that can come from connecting with those in the DOC (diabetes online community). Perhaps the 'nervousness' noted by diabetes educators (CDEs) about social media for diabetes will improve to empowerment!
