I like podcasts. I listen to them as often as I can and I feel blessed that there are so many great diabetes podcasts to choose from.
I actually have a diabetes podcast to thank for bringing a very important person into my life. George Simmons would not have found the diabetes online community when he did if it weren’t for Christel’sDiabetic Feed podcast. My world would be much different if G-Money hadn’t found that podcast.
I enjoy helping friends. Friends like Dr. Oser. We first met at a CWD Focus on Technology some years back, and I’m happy to say we’re now working together on CWD’s Friends for Life ‘Adults with Type 1’ track. We even wore matching uniforms one-day last summer…
Jill Weissberg-Benchell, a psychologist and CDE in Chicago (and a dear friend) is inviting people with T1D and their loved ones (partners, spouses, parents) to participate in a focus group with other PWD to talk about your hopes and expectations of new diabetes technology.
And I'm not talking about the New Orleans humidity
There was a different feeling around the 2015 AADE Annual Meeting this year, and I noticed it almost immediately. As soon as I picked up my materials and glanced at the meeting guide, something special jumped out at me.
Diabetes advocacy can be intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be. You have friends who want to make it easy. Easy for you to learn about what’s going on, and even easier for you to let lawmakers and government agencies know how you feel (it’s a few clicks).
