New and old videos.

I’m talking old and new videos on this Friday… let’s start with the new:

New Videos
First, new videos. So new, in fact, that they haven’t been made yet. But a video will be made on Tuesday, September 15 at 4:00 Eastern time here in the USA. That’s when I’ll be talking to Rick Phillips of TuDiabetes. We’ll spend the better part of an hour talking diabetes, blogging, and whatever else Rick wants to talk about. I hope you’ll join us. CLICK HERE to find out more. When the time comes, CLICK HERE to follow along and join the conversation.

I’m really looking forward to this.
Now… old videos:

Old Videos
Back in April, I was lucky enough to attend something called the HealtheVoices Conference. It was a terrific weekend where I met many other people living with chronic conditions like mine. The interactions, the connections made that weekend are having a lasting effect on me (Diabetes By The Numbers), and this week, I was reminded of them again when these videos were released. I wrote about the weekend here. At the end of the conference, we sat down with an interviewer and answered three questions. The answer to those three questions, from many different points of view, is below.

Note: Janssen Pharmaceuticals paid for my travel, hotel, and meals so I could attend the HealtheVoices Conference. All opinions, as usual, are my own.

Why should you view these videos? Because you’ll see and hear people living with chronic conditions, many of whom are not living with diabetes, who are just as passionate about what they advocate for as I am about advocating for better access to care, treatment, and medication for People living With Diabetes. They are also reaching out and building communities and inspiring others, and I thought you might like to see who some of them are.

And hey… there are some DOC people in there too. In the first two videos, you’ll see the always compelling Christel Marchand Aprigliano. The last video starts with me, and also includes Karen Graffeo and Kerri Sparling, who always sound waaaaay better than I do.

When I saw my part, and saw that I was tagged as a Type 2 Diabetes advocate, I paused for a moment…

Then I realized, yeah, I live with Type 1, but I’m an advocate for all People With Diabetes, so if you want to label me as a Type 2 advocate, then okay… because I’m that too.


I hope your Friday is a good one, and I hope your weekend is full of fun and excitement. And good glucose. Remember:

I support you… no conditions.
