 What is a CDE? 

CDE stands for a Certified Diabetes Educator.  In addition to having a health professional degree, such as a nursing degree/credential, nutrition degree/credential, or pharmacy degree/credential.   CDEs have a bare minimum of 1000 hours of experience caring for and educating people with diabetes as well as a specialized knowledge of diabetes (as demonstrated by passing an exam).  For more information, www.ncbde.org

Do I have to be a CDE to join  WADE?
NO, we have lots of non CDE in WADE as well as CDE's.  You must have an interest in diabetes education.

Do I have to be an AADE member to join WADE?  If so, why?
To be an ACTIVE WADE member with full voting rights you must be an AADE because we are a chapter of AADE and we have to follow many of their rules.   Only Active WADE members can vote, hold office, or chair a committee.   However, if you are not an AADE member, you may enjoy many of the membership benefits such as access to our members only part of the website and invitations to professional education offerings, by becoming an Associate Member.  Please see Join WADE, under the For Professionals section.

Why am I see distorted pages and/or text?

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, you may see a distorted or "exploded" page layout or strange text interspersed throughout the website or pages with text that is overlapping.  This was one of the many problems with Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6, which is why we strongly urge all Windows users to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8, which is far more secure, stable, and in compliance with web standards. Even better down load Firefox.
