                              newspapers about CDE’s and what we do.            are available and how
                                                                                do we get our name out

                                Question raised as to why are we not
                                running public service announcements.
                                DPH is supporting public service
                                announcements. Cindy to see if DPH can
                                help us to do a public service
                                announcement about diabetes educators.

                                Kari suggested to possibly have a video and
                                place it on the web or do a U-tube video
                                regarding Diabetes Education and educators
                                in CT.

                                Question – Do we earmark budget money
                                for ads? Maybe next year – think about
                                using money for public relations. Will
                                continue to discuss this as the next year’s
                                budget comes up.

                                Suggestion made to display a poster in the
                                library locally for a month talking about
                                local diabetes educators and educational
                                opportunities for communities.
