Diabetes PHD: Free Risk Assessment Tool
Diabetes PHD is an individualhealth risk assessment tool based on the revolutionary Archimedes model of human physiology. The mathematical model underlyingDiabetes PHD program is highly complex, requiring a grid of computers to calculate each health risk profile. The ADA recently created a new dedicated grid of computers to support Diabetes PHD, which hasincreased the number of profiles that can be supported at one time. Many health care professionals have found that the risk profiles generated by Diabetes PHD can have a profound impact in promoting behavior change in their patients.
Continuing Education Opportunities
The American Diabetes Association conducts professional education activities in support of our overall mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. It is our belief that the quality of treatment received by the person with diabetes is directly dependent upon the education and expertise of his or her health care team. You probably know about ADA's local and national meetings, but did you know we also offer on-line continuing education activities on DiabetesPro? Current offerings include highlights of the 68th ADA Scientific Sessions held in June, 2008; Understanding Cardiometabolic Risk; a self-assessment module on basic principles of management of type 2 diabetes; and others.
