Like these links. Lotsa stuff.

This being June, there are lots of D-happenings happening over the coming months. These events are always great ways to meet people, compare notes, and learn a lot in a short time. Here goes:
 
 
Taking Control Of Your Diabetes is hosting one of its big conferences in Washington, D.C. this Saturday. It will be an all day affair that includes fitness sessions, screenings, a Type 1 and Type 2 track, and chances to see and interact with Dr. Steve Edelman, founder of TCOYD, Kerri Sparling, former NBA star Dominique Wilkins, and many more. Twenty dollars gets you all of this and lunch if you register before Saturday; if you register at the door, it’ll cost twenty-five. All the information is available here:

My local JDRF chapter, the Greater Chesapeake and Potomac chapter, is getting ready for its annual meeting on June 26. The meeting this year will take place at the Discovery Communications headquarters at One Discovery Place in Silver Spring, Maryland, just outside of D.C. The guest speaker this year is Moira McCarthy, a tireless advocate, an author, and writer of the popular blog Despite Diabetes. The event is free to all, but you have to register to attend.

This isn’t scheduled until next March, but I’m hearing a lot of buzz about the Diabetes UnConference, so you might want to get on board early. Brainchild of Christel Marchand Aprigliano, it’s happening next March 13th through the 15th in Las Vegas. The UnConference is specifically for adults 21 and older living with diabetes of any flavor. What is an UnConference? I don’t think I can do the description justice, so just click over here to find out more and register before everything is booked up and sold out:

That’s it for now. Hope your Wednesday is sunny and warm. And don’t forget about the #DSMA Twitter Chat at 9:00 EDT (US) tonight!
