I know I’m not alone when I say that connecting with people who “get it,” makes our lives easier; expands our universe, empowers us - both as patients and people - and those connections continually reinforce the fact that we are not alone in our lives with diabetes.
One of the people who “get it,” is Hope Warshaw, a type 3 Dietitian; RD, CDE, BC-ADM, Author, Speaker and Diabetes Advocate and the 2015 President-elect of the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
I first *met* Hope the way I met most of you, online. In 2012 I had the opportunity to meet Hope IRL (in real life,) at ADA in Philadelphia - and lucky for me, our paths continue to cross - which is awesome because I’m a huge fan of Hope in all diabetes dimensions!
Recently, Hope interviewed me for the section of her blog called, "Dialoging About Diabetes," a series of interviews with Diabetes Activists.
The primary goals of these interviews is "to help make living with diabetes…just a bit easier. Goal two is to enhance the two-way street – to help more PWD connect and encourage more DHCPs to connect PWD to the value of social networking."
