In August of 2017, I had the privilege of attending the annual AADE conference through CDN’s NextGen leadership program. At this point, I had just graduated from the University of Michigan and was working on a social research project at the university. While I loved my job, I knew that I wanted to experience working in the diabetes sector and was excited for the opportunity to dive head first into it.   The conference itself was an amazing networking and learning opportunity but my fondest… Read more

As a graduating senior I was looking forward to sharing my college experiences with peers, industry leaders, and CDN staff. My expectations of the events were far surpassed and even weeks later I am still thinking about the friendships, networking, and knowledge I gained in a single weekend. The events were created… Read more
When I walked into the CDN office on my first day of work, I was nervous beyond words. This was my first job out of college, and as excited I was to start my career and work with CDN, it was a whole new world for me. To top it all off, after only being in the office for a few hours, my Omnipod made that horrific beeping noise and had ultimately failed (all my Omnipod friends can sympathize with me on this one) and I didn’t have any backup pods/insulin with me. A great start to my first day of… Read more

This past week, I had the distinct pleasure of attending “The State of Diabetes” - a meeting for congressional members on Capitol Hill. While it does sound like “The State of the Union” address, I was not appointed the “designated survivor” (lucky for you). Rather, this meeting of the minds allowed the most prominent members in the diabetes community to come together and brief congress people on where our country is in diabetes research, expenses, and overall life with the disease. This meeting… Read more
