By Amy Bradshaw, RD, CDE at Fit4D I recently had an individual ask me what exactly is a CDE, and what do they do? My initial response was a quick, textbook type answer: a certified diabetes educator (CDE) is a health professional who has experience and expertise in the area of diabetes prevention and management.

“I can’t do this anymore,” Mary* said to me after morning rounds. As third-year medical students, this could have been in reference to a number of things: 5 a.m. rounds, practice sutures, 14-hour days, the list goes on. Though I later learned Mary was simply referring to living. An article recently published by JAMA showed […]

An article recently published by JAMA showed depression or depressive symptoms among medical students was as high as 27.2 percent and that of suicidal ideation was 11.1 percent. This is in stark contrast to similar age groups of the general population, where the prevalence has been shown to be 9.6 percent and 3.7 percent respectively.

Team Mexico athlete German Madrazo may have only been cross-country skiing for a year, but he just gave us the most heartwarming moment of the 2018 Winter Games so far while competing in the sport. No, Madrazo didn’t win the gold, silver, or even bronze medal – in fact, he came in dead last during the 15km freestyle skiing event. But his enthusiastic response to crossing the finish line is a proud moment you won’t want to miss, and the reactions of his fellow competitors will fill your eyes with happy tears.
Madrazo waves the Mexican flag as the last finisher in the 15k cross-country and then gets hoisted up by the other late finishers from r/olympics
Twenty-six minutes behind the rest of his competition, 43-year-old Madrazo skied over to the sidelines and grabbed a large Mexican flag that he then carried across the Olympic finish line. Upon finishing the race, several of Madrazo’s competitors – including our favorite Tongan flag bearer, Pita Taufatofua – hoisted him up on their shoulders to celebrate his completion. The viral moment (which you can view above) is one of pure, unadulterated joy, and Madrazo’s hard work at this new sport is a true testament to his country . . . no matter where he placed in the race.
Prior to these Winter Games, Madrazo lived and trained in Austria with his competitors from Chile and Tonga. “At the beginning of December 2017, we realized that to achieve success in an individual sport, you need to have a team. We trained together, we traveled together, we cooked for each other. It was an amazing experience," his Olympic athlete bio reads. The competitive Ironman athlete also served as Mexico’s flag bearer during the opening ceremony. Talk about an inspiration!
