Gary Scheiner is working hard to start the new year off right for as many people living with diabetes as he can. He has decided to offer all live classes at Type 1 University for absolutely free during the month of January! Space is limited, and classes are filling up fast.

A bunch of years back I spent some time working at an ISP (Internet Service Provider). I had the opportunity to take a bunch of training courses. One of my favorite courses was called "Think Like A Router", and it was the class that finally got through to me. It was the class that made the light bulb "pop" on for me. All of a sudden I was able to make sense out of so many … [Read more...] about Newly Dx Week: Think Like A Pancreas
