Friday Reminders.

A couple of quick Friday updates before I go back and park myself in front of the nearest space heater:

The FDA Office of Minority Health Will Host a Webinar About Commenting to a Docket. Want to learn more about adding your voice to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration docket concerning your health (HELLO, Advocacy)? Efforts from the Diabetes Online Community to add the voice of the patient to FDA considerations has been extremely helpful and is absolutely necessary. Find out how to do it, and why it’s important for you to add your voice, during a webinar hosted by the FDA’s Office of Minority Health on March 25 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

#DBlogCheck Day is back this Tuesday! Spearheaded by Christopher Snider of A Consequence of Hypoglycemia and the Just Talking Podcast, D-Blog Check-in Day is a day when we spend time commenting on every blog, Twitter feed, Instagram member, and so on that we see, even if we just say “check”. As Chris says, it’s not about page views; it’s about saying I’m here and I support you. It’s about continuing to build community.

CLICK HERE to find out more, and don’t forget to link your posts there on Tuesday.

Be sure to check in, leave a comment, and boost the spirit of someone bravely telling their story.
Finally… If you live in the USA, don’t forget to move your clocks ahead one hour this weekend. That also means please remember to update the time on your diabetes devices. I know I’m getting older, because this “Spring Forward” event seems to happen earlier every year.

If only Spring would come along with the change…

Like these December Links.

Lots and lots of interesting things to read about in the diabetes blogosphere this week… So let’s get to it:
Christopher Snider, who writes at A Consequence of Hypoglycemia, has started a new gig at Symplur. In his words,
“This means I get to look at all kinds of data collected by Symplur’s extensive tools and figure out ways to bring the patient communities into these data-based conversations.”

His first post about it features a very interesting look at the World Diabetes Day Twitter chat hosted by Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation. Lots to digest, but if you’re an analytical nut like me, it’s kinda cool.
“All things are temporary.”
If you need something inspirational one week before Christmas, here it is.
Take this with you all through the next year.
This made me laugh… and then cry.
Diabetes Mine has announced a new partnership with Healthline. Healthline, among other things, is famous for its list of “Influential [insert condition here] Bloggers of The Year”. The partnership goes live in January, and in addition to lots of collaboration, it promises to bring a new look to the website.
Finally… I am in love with this blog I just found.
I’ll leave it to you to click over and discover what I’m talking about.
I hope your December days are full of fun and magic. Don’t forget to join me for the #DSMA Twitter chat tonight at 9:00 eastern time here in the USA. Follow @DiabetesSocMed and the #DSMA hashtag to join the conversation. In the meantime…

Happy Reading!
