Work Pet Peeve

Oh, Dr. Investigator? I got a beef with you. You can NOT just say you gave a presentation at the ADA conference. Normally I don't sweat abbreviations, but considering our field, ADA can either be the American Dietetic Association OR the American Diabetic Assocation. Two very different entities, folks. Don't make me google this shit, people. I won't appreciate it!


And for the record? http://www.ada.org is the American Dental Association. It doesn't matter that I knew Am. Diab. Assn is http://www.diabetes.org and Am. Diet. Assn is http://www.eatright.org. I still am peeved!

I have found my answer. It was the American Dietetic Association. Bah!
