Bringing Science Home to Present at the American Association of Diabetes Educators Annual Meeting

Posted on March 15, 2011 by The Patterson Foundation

Bringing Science Home, a collaborative initiative launched through a partnership with The Patterson Foundation and USF Health, was chosen to make two presentations at the American Association of Diabetes Educators annual meeting in August.

The first presentation, "Diabetes Distress in Parents: A Review of Innovative Methods for Assessment and Intervention," combines BSH's Diabetes Distress Project and Parent Perspective research and will be given by Dr. William Polonsky and BSH Executive Director Nicole Johnson.

The second presentation, "Transitioning Points in Students' Lives - Navigating the Journey with Diabetes," is based on research from the Students with Diabetes project and will be given by BSH's Nicole Johnson, University of Pittsburgh's Jean Betschart-Roemer and University of Chicago's Amy Hess-Fischl.

In addition, Nicole, representing BSH and Students with Diabetes, will deliver a presentation at the American College Health Association's annual meeting in June along with Dr. Michael Deichen, medical director of student health at the University of Central Florida.
