daveThose of us in the U.S. celebrated Thanksgiving this week. One of the things the DIC team has to be thankful for is our wonderful readers. We’re grateful for your loyal readership and especially for the great feedback and content, like our weekly Disasters Averted stories, you send us.

We recently asked you to submit your best advice on how to prevent insulin errors at home, at pharmacies, and in the hospital. We’re happy to announce the winner of our contest, Joyce Larson! You can read Joyce’s winning entry as well as some of the other great entries submitted by the DIC community here.

As the DIC team spends extra time with our family and friends this holiday week, we’ve put together a retrospective of one of our most popular features, the Test Your Knowledge questions. We have a new question for you and a roundup of the most popular questions of 2015 (plus a Thanksgiving-themed bonus question). See how many you remember!
