Some round-up thoughts this #NDAM..

For the past several years, I’ve used the month of November to showcase people in my local area living with type 1. You can head over to my public Facebook page or Instagram to see the pictures and read their stories. If you found this post and you live in the Charlotte, NC area, please consider joining our parent group or one for adults living with type 1.

Thanks to the Charlotte Observer for publishing a column I wrote, “What the Diabetes Community Wants You to Know.” I asked my podcast listeners for their ideas and I was thrilled with what they came up with. I heard from several people outside the diabetes community who thanked me for opening their eyes to what living with diabetes is really all about.

On World Diabetes Day (Nov 14th) I was asked to stop by my local NBC affiliate to do some basic info stuff.  Always fun to go back on the news (I spent 10+ years in local TV and another 10+ in radio).

There are too many terrific blogs, Facebook posts and other stories to list here. But please consider following the hashtags #NDAM #DAM #DiabetesAwarenessMonth #MakeDiabetesVisible and #T1DLooksLikeMe to connect with great people. And we can do that all year long!
