Celebrating diabetes care and education leadership five decades in the making. 

We are advocates for better diabetes care. We support the person with diabetes and prediabetes. We are listeners, innovators, problem-solvers, decision-makers, leaders. We are diabetes care and education specialists.  

Over the past 50 years, our roles have expanded. Today, we strive to be leaders and experts in diabetes technology and cardiometabolic care as we continue to have a positive impact on improving care for those we serve.  

There is so much to look forward to in 2023 and beyond. Join us in Houston for ADCES23 in August and celebrate a half-century of progress with us all year long as we share milestones, celebrate leaders and strengthen our connections to our nationwide network of support. 


To celebrate 50 years, we will profile 50 nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who are dedicated to improving prediabetes, diabetes and cardiometabolic care. Get ready to be inspired by the dedication and determination of individuals that make our community stronger. And let’s continue to face what’s next together as we elevate our roles and our knowledge as diabetes care and education specialists. Not a member of ADCES? There is no better time to join than today!
