Membership For Board Members

Board member Membership update

Dec 6,2007 Here is the excel spreadsheet that has   list of the committees interests.of members ... (it does not include the people who registered/renewed in the last 2 weeks or so)....

Also on that excel worksheet is the raw data from the website and from the offline database.  You can see that are still about 20 people who are not registered on the website and about a half dozen who do not have email addresses on file despite several letters/reminders to ask for them.

 You may have to use the tabs at the bottom to get to the right worksheet.

Prandial Percolations #3- An in-depth 2008 ADA Scientific Sessions recap- 

By Jennifer Beach, PharmD, CDE on June 17,2008.

Diabetes Medications An in-depth look at the medications used to treat diabetes
This presentation was created and submitted to WADE by Marsha D. Goodman, Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate 2008, Washington State University. The presentation is very comprehensive and may need to be simplified for patient teaching. Medications to be released soon are also included but combination medications are not included because each medication is covered individually. Members of WADE are encouraged to copy and edit the presentation and use it in any patient teaching. Please e mail Marsha if you would like to comment on her presentation.
