Adrenal insufficiency United is pleased to share the following training tools and resources for medical providers. We value you and hope you will find our resources helpful. The first section of this page is focused on training. The second section has physician resources and ways you can help make a difference for the AI community.
Our professional training videos will help you understand adrenal insufficiency (AI), recognize an adrenal crisis, and respond with the correct treatment. The sessions were recorded at our March 2018 conference in Kansas City Missouri.
Collective Medical Technologies, based in Salt Lake City Utah, sponsored the production of these recordings. By unifying hospitals and care teams through real-time information alerts, patient context, and collaborative plans of care, Collective Medical Technology enables hospitals to help their highest-needs patients. Learn about EDIE for hospital emergency departments and case management.
Thank you, Collective Medical Technologies, for sponsoring this important training tool!

He is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and specializes in pediatric endocrinology. Thank you Dr. Midyett for your excellent presentation!
