It’s Member Appreciation Month!

Our members are the heart of our community and we would like to take the time to recognize them for their contributions to SurroundHealth over the past year. Members have the opportunity to engage through discussions, articles, resource submissions, and more. Over the next few weeks, we will be spotlighting a few of our top contributors of 2012, starting with member and Ambassador, Joanne Rinker, MS, RD, CDE, LDN.

Thanks, Joanne for being such an active member of SurroundHealth, and for all that you do.

Part of what makes SurroundHealth so unique is the range of health professions that make up our community. Each member is able to share their knowledge around their area of expertise, Joanne’s being diabetes education. As a certified diabetes educator, she has attained special certification to teach people with diabetes how to manage their condition. Proving to be an expert in her field, the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) recently named her their 2013 Diabetes Educator of the Year. Wow!

Some of Joanne’s best contributions include…

• Article: What you need to know about the link between diabetes and hearing loss

• Resource: Patient Education Materials from the National Diabetes Education Program

• Article: How to Put Together a Virtual Patient Class

• Discussion: Using Technology to Facilitate Webinar with Patients

As of January 1st, Joanne is also serving as a SurroundHealth Ambassador where she will be bringing some great discussions, articles and a webinar to SurroundHealth, so stay tuned!
