Like these links.

Today I have a couple of time-sensitive items, and a couple of links that I hope will be helpful and informative. They were for me, anyway. Holy #diabetes Batman— To the #DOC:

—————————————————————

– Don’t forget that Monday is Diabetes Art Day. Founded by Lee Ann Thill in 2010, Diabetes Art Day is designed to help people affected by diabetes connect through creativity. So get out the construction paper, the paint, the pen, or the camera and come up with the idea of what diabetes is saying to you. Then post it on the D-Art Day website, but don’t forget to send it up to Facebook and Twitter too (hashtag: #DArtDay). All the information on how to participate is available at diabetesartday.com
 
 
– Sara Nicastro at Moments of Wonderful is participating in a webinar next Wednesday (February 5th) hosted by the American Diabetes Association and the College Diabetes Network. CDN is working on improving and empowering college students with diabetes. A quick count on their website reveals they already have 72 chapters operating at schools all over. You or a loved one who’s living with diabetes and who hopes to go to college soon might find this a very useful part of your week. Since Sara posted about it originally, I won’t link to the webinar registration directly. Instead, go to her post about the webinar to get the details.
 
 
– There are a couple of diabetes bloggers who have been researching a pump change (and making a change already in one case). I’m linking to their stories here because I think the descriptions of both exercises in due diligence are informative, and great reference material for the next time you’re making an insulin pump decision.
Read about Jen’s demos and reviews here.
Read about Kim’s demos and reviews here.
 
 
– What does diabetes take away from us in time over the years? Rhonda at FifteenWaitFifteen has a pretty good explanation of it when she talks about Charging Diabetes by the Hour.
 
 
– Finally… because my sense of fairness can’t let this post contain only links to blogs written by women… Here’s a fine post from Scott at Rolling in the D, who describes how different and yet similar we all are.

—————————————————————

Enjoy the rest of your week… I’m already googling “at-home art projects”.

    I look forward to seeing the art projects you all come up with! I’m not sure if I’ll be able to come up with anything myself though 😦

    Thank you Stephen, I’m honored to be the token man in your link-list.

    And I’ve been racking my brain for weeks to come up with an idea for D-Art Day. After meeting Lee Ann and seeing her passion for the project, I can’t let another year go by without being part of it.

    Thanks for the link up, friend! I am really excited about the webinar. There are a lot of misconceptions about accommodations, and I think the ADA and CDN are really on the right track to help!
