I’m giving a shout out today to the Diabetes Hope Conference.
I can’t travel right now, you say? Too expensive to attend, you say?
It’s virtual, I say. It’s free, I say.
The Diabetes Hope Conference will be held online on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 from 12 to 3pm Eastern. (I’m East Coast, peeps. You can probably do the math better than I can for your local time.) You’ve got to register for it, but it’s easy to do with a few clicks. (If you’re on Google+, you can RSVP for the event here.)
Some prominent DOCers will be talking about complications – especially diabetic peripheral neuropathy – and social media. How DO we talk about complications with others online (or even in person)? It’s not a happy-go-lucky subject, but for anyone who deals with complications from diabetes, it’s necessary. It’s amazing what happens when you share your fears; you find that you’re not alone in feeling that way and sometimes, you even learn of new treatments and tips that can help.
Join my sweet friends (pun is totally intended) Scott Johnson, Kerri Sparling, George Simmons, Manny Hernandez, Mike Lawson, and more at the Diabetes Hope Conference on May 21st… I’ll be there. (In my bunny slippers in front of my laptop, thanking the universe that I don’t have to deal with TSA or the guy who smells like hoagies and old sweat socks in the airplane seat next to me.)
*The event is being organized by Metanx. I don’t know the company at all, but it claims to provides the distinct nutritional requirements needed by diabetes patients to restore the metabolic processes associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. As always, I am not being paid to promote this event or companies and products associated with the event. I’m going for the information, not the swag, which is hard to get when you’re virtual, right?
