On July 22, the St. Louis Diabetes Coalition hosted a training program for 26 health care professionals to learn about and discuss the Conversation Map approach to diabetes education. The Coalition thanks Merck for sponsoring the event and SLADE member Kathy Little, RN, CDE for being the facilitator. Ms. Little has been to 30 states and 95 cities to provide 100 training a programs. It must have been nice to do one so close to home. Thank you to everyone who attended… especially one nurse who traveled from the Bootheel to join us. For more information about Conversation Maps, goto www.healthyi.com.
