In an effort to help spread the word about great things happening around the diabetes community, I’d like to share that Diabetes Sisters recently opened up registration for the 2011 Weekend for Women Conference in Raleigh, NC. The conference will take place on April 29th through May 1, 2011, and I’m totally jealous that I can’t attend (maybe I can buy a wig and fake it?).
From the press release:
The Weekend for Women Conference is open to all women with diabetes age 18 and older. Participants will attend educational sessions on gender-specific topics related to diabetes treatment and management (such as pregnancy, body image, concurrent illnesses, nutrition, physical fitness), engage with other women living successfully with diabetes, receive unbiased information on the emergence of new equipment and medications, and learn new tactics for improving their mental and physical health. The Conference Exhibit Hall will be open from 8am-5pm on Saturday, April 30th.
There will be a special guest for the Saturday breakfast – Gloria Loring!
I was excited to see this because one of my best friends recently interviewed Gloria for his podcast (taking advantage of the opportunity to plug his show!). Spud is a magical musician and producer who has been interviewing some huge names in the music industry. To get to know a little more about Gloria Loring, spend a few minutes listening to his interview with her, then check out some of his other work.
I totally agree with Kerri, in that niche groups are like customized care, and I’m all for people getting what they need. Have all sorts of fun ladies! Please report back on all of the great stuff you learn and fun you have!

“Imagine having to pump your own heart because it didn’t do it by itself. And when you want to sleep you have to pump it slower. For exercise you would have to speed it up. You would have to know the rate of pumping for every activity. Do you think you could do it? Do you think it would be easy?”— George Simmons, Facebook
