Newswise: UND Aerospace and Petroleum Engineering teaming up to study whether aviation safety concepts can be applied to offshore drilling

UND Aerospace and Petroleum Engineering teaming up to study whether aviation safety concepts can be applied to offshore drilling

University of North Dakota

“Better safe than sorry” is an overused credo in life. But in the world of aviation and oil-and-gas exploration, as much as anywhere, it can be the fine line between life and death. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine recognizes this sobering reality and is betting that proven successes in one of those industries – aviation—can be applied to the other, specifically on offshore drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. And the Academies has turned to the University of North Dakota, which has expertise in both disciplines, for what could be a first-of-a-kind such study.

Former AADE rebrands as Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists

American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE)

The former American Association of Diabetes Educators is now the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists (ADCES). The rebranding reflects the association’s shift from referencing the specialty title as “diabetes educator” to the more comprehensive “diabetes care and education specialist.” The new title more accurately signifies the range of expertise diabetes care and education specialists provide to people with diabetes, prediabetes and cardiometabolic conditions, the health care system, payers and providers.
