I’ve spent my entire career in broadcasting. I started in radio before I even graduated from college. When I left my morning show after ten years, I didn’t miss waking up at 3am, but I did miss the interviews. I missed speaking with interesting people and learning something new every day.

I began to think, why not do that again, but use those skills to listen and learn about diabetes? So that’s what I’ve done. Introducing my new podcast, Diabetes Connections.

The first episode is with someone who helped make dozens of connections earlier this year, at the Diabetes Unconference. Christel Marchand Aprigliano, who blogs at The Perfect D, talks about the power of “me too.” You’ll also hear about a separate, chance diabetes connection at Target that lasted til closing.


In the weeks to come, this website will change a little, and there will be a place for your feedback, guest suggestions and a way to share your stories of connection.  I’m excited to hear from you.

Thanks for listening!
