A Lot Going On . . . .

There is quite a bit happening in the Diabetes Online Community over the next few weeks, and I wanted to make sure nobody misses out!
  • Diabetes Blog Week!

    Sign ups are rolling along for the 4th Annual Diabetes Blog Week, with about 110 bloggers participating right now.  Diabetes Blog Week starts on MONDAY so please join in!  You can use this form to sign up, preview the topics here, and find all of the details over here.  I could not be more excited to see what next week brings!

  • The Diabetes Hope Conference

    The Diabetes Hope Conference is a free virtual event that is open to all and will be held via Google+ Hangouts.  We’ll be discussing life with diabetes, life with diabetes complications, and living with diabetes and hope.  I think this virtual conference is a really cool idea and something that is much needed, and I’m thrilled to be participating on one of the panels.

  • Diabetes Co-Stars Video
    Last weekend a new Diabetes Co-Stars Video premiered at the ADA Expo in L.A.  It stars actress Elizabeth Perkins, who has T1, and the winners of last year’s  Diabetes Co-Stars casting call.  It’s a great video showcasing the need for support, but that’s not the only reason you should watch it.  Once the video gets 10,000 views, Sanofi will donate another $10,000 to the Diabetes Hands Foundation.  (This is in addition to the $10,000 donation they made last year.)  The DHF runs many important programs and it’s great that taking just 15 minutes to watch the video can help bring in more funding!

Enjoy your weekend, rest up, and I’ll see you here on Monday for Diabetes Blog Week!
