Hot Off the Presses!

Today is the official day I made my debut as the Editor of Today’s Dietitian. The September 2011 issue is hot off the presses! I’m so excited!

The September issue (left) is one of the largest issues of the year. The October issue is supposed to be just as large if not larger. I’ve just completed the first round of edits for the October issue, and I’m gearing up to begin editing the November issue and assigning the December issue next week.

I’ve been super busy since starting my new job six weeks ago as Editor of this publication. Not only have I edited and assigned 1-1/2 issues already, but I’ve assigned, written news, and edited online exclusive features as well — and traveled to Las Vegas. It’s been a whirlwind, but a very rewarding experience. And I’m just getting started. The good thing is that you can view the online digital version of the magazine right here, and see how gorgeous the publication is. My Editor’s note with my photo is on page 4. 🙂

Today’s Dietitian also has an e-newsletter you can view here. It’s chock full of news not published in the print publication; it has an exclusive feature article; and a different editor’s note from me! So please take a gander at the publication and e-newsletter when you have a moment and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback. Enjoy the issue!

The food, the trade show, and the workshops at the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) annual meeting were fantastic. I really learned a great deal about diabetes prevention, treatment, and management from the registered dietitian’s and certified diabetes educator’s perspective.

Because I was so busy attending workshops and manning our booth on the trade show floor, I didn’t get a chance to walk around Vegas and see the sites. It was very sunny and 105 degrees during the day, so it’s just as well I didn’t venture out. I would have baked — or roasted out there. The good news is that I didn’t neglect to take some photos. (For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a diehard photo enthusiast and wannabe professional photographer.) I took the photo above at the crack of dawn the other morning from my Read full post …
