The handheld mirror is attached to a telescoping arm that extends up to 37 inches, making it easy to spot cuts, blisters, or other wounds. Its collapsible design makes it perfect for travel. $12.95, medicool.comBenjamin Page

What’s in a Name?

Your certified diabetes educator (CDE) has a new title: certified diabetes care and education specialist (CDCES). Granted, it’s a mouthful. But it better reflects the broad expertise these specialists provide not only to people with diabetes and prediabetes but also those with heart conditions. What does this mean for you? You may see different credentials after your diabetes educator’s name, but nothing about the care you receive has changed. For more information, visit diabeteseducator.org/DCEShelp. —Kimberly Goad
