We’re excited to debut our new AADE Member Spotlight with South Carolina member Cynthia L. Norris, BSN, RN, CDE: 

“I think it is important to remember that the true purpose of diabetes education is to teach patients how to make informed choices about their diabetes. It is very easy to want to tell patients what to do, but as healthcare professionals we need to slow down and let the patient guide us with what’s on their minds."
