Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms

(and a game show!) with Kerri, Scott & Bennet

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’s Diabetic Feed podcast. My world would be much different if G-Money hadn’t found that podcast.

Diabetes wasn’t trying to hear it.

I made my flight, but I’m a little tired today. And every time I dozed off during the flights, I worried about punching my neighbor…

Diabetes safety, quality, and access – do you care?

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).
