Message from Christine:
I recently joined Linked In, a social networking website for professionals. It is basically the business version of FaceBook.
It's a great tool for researching jobs and connecting with other people in the workforce.
Here is the Linked In website: LinkedIn.com
Check out the "Groups" section on Linked In. There are some good ones such as the American Dietetic Association and AADE (American Association of Diabetes Educators). The AADE Group
frequently posts new studies related to diabetes.
Visit Linked In and start building your professional network!
