Diabetes By The Numbers is back, with the first in what I hope will be a series of episodes in which I’ll investigate healthcare in countries other than my own.
Helping me get started is Mariana Gomez. Mariana is a super diabetes advocate, through the diabetes community in Mexico City where she lives, as a writer at her personal blog, dulcesitosparami.com, and as Community and Social Media Assistant for the Hispanic Market at Diabetes Hands Foundation.
In addition to that, she’s a licensed practicing psychologist. And oh, by the way, she’s been living with Type 1 diabetes for over 30 years.
Mariana is uniquely qualified to discuss diabetes at any time, and certainly qualified to discuss the state of healthcare for those living with diabetes in Mexico.
As I said, this is the first in what I hope will be a series of interviews on healthcare from a number of countries. If you’re living in a country outside of the USA and you’d like to talk about healthcare where you live, please send me an e-mail at happymedium[dot]net[at]gmail[dot]com and let’s talk.
