Scrambled Brain

The Johnson family returned from the 2011 Friends for Life conference late on Sunday. My brain is frantically trying to process all of the magic that I experienced, and I’ve been crazy busy catching up on home stuff. I feel like I need a good solid week of quiet time just to pull myself together.

As I work through everything, I’d like you to take a look at Kerri’s recent blog post about the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). At the 2011 Roche Summit, just weeks before the Friends for Life conference, we met with both Isabella Platon, Head of Communication for IDF, and Jean Claude Mbanya, President of the IDF.

I hope you get a sense of how much impact they had on us and that you start to pay more attention to them.  One easy place to start is with their “O is for OUTRAGE” campaign.  I’ve already sent my postcard.

As I become more educated about them and their work, I’ll do my best to share it all with you.
