Our members are healthcare professionals who are committed to providing evidence-based best practice diabetes education to better the lives of those directly or indirectly affected by diabetes.


What We Do

Diabetes education is a specialty field of health care practice. ADEA offers professional recognition and development programs to support diabetes educators working toward achieving and maintaining a CDE status through a national credentialling program.

We also support our members and communities through eventsresources and learning.
