FUTURE TOPICS - We also look forward to have an opportunity to hear from Fiona Clement, one of the coordinators of the Health Technology Assessment Unit (HTA) about the results of the recent Diabetes Management and Continuous Glucose Monitors focus groups. This will likely be in the fall. The Health Technology Assessment Unit (HTA) at the University of Calgary is comprised of experts in systematic review, economic modelling, qualitative research, health information and policy analysis.

These past few months we have had meetings featuring Diabetes Educators, Pharmacists, and a Meditation instructor. Please let us know if there are other ideas or interests you would like to have addressed, or if you know someone who would be willing to make a presentation on a topic of interest at one of our meetings.

Please send a note if you ARE planning to attend.

Future Topics:

For the coming year we hope to offer discussion on the following topics:

- Presentations by insulin pump representatives on what is now available as well as new technology.

- Travelling with diabetes; experiences and tips for more successful travel experiences.

- Where is research going for diabetes?

If you have any suggestions for topics of interest or know of anyone who would be willing to make a presentation or just join us for a discussion, at future meetings, please email Cynthia...
