2016 Public Policy Forum
AADE held its annual Public Policy Forum on May 13-14 in Rosemont, IL. In the past, this event has been held in Washington, DC with a special focus on the promotion and advancement of the federal legislative agenda. However, this year, 70 attendees representing 28 states convened as a network of key stakeholders who are experts and advocate on behalf of their profession, persons with diabetes, and relevant diabetes-related legislative and regulatory issues.
