I did a little surfing today on the web, not a luxury I get to do very often. I cam across an interesting site called Diabetes Advocates and who did I see there but our own Amy Tendrich of Diabetes Mine and Richard Vaughn. Along with several other folks that I have grown familiar with over the years. It's an interesting site of people with diabetes who are movers and shakers and getting some things done out there.

Here is the link to the site. http://diabetesadvocates.org/ You may remember the Diabetes Hands where we all shared our single word associated with our diabetes written on our hands. http://www.diabeticconnect.com/photos/2928 You can sign up to get alerts of things they are doing so you can participate if you want.

Advocating is more than just a single day event. Here, we can participate as much as we want and get the word out there.

It really is a great group of people. And like many of us they are just trying to create a better quality of life for themselves and all diabetics everywhere. Advocacy is very important in moving diabetes research and technology forward, so go check it out and find out what you can do to help in the fight.

thank you Gabby I've been to that site before but forgot about it. I love the information that is available on both sites. I help people in my clinic with how to eat right on a budget and even how to exercise to keep healthy. I know more about Diabetes than our coordinator. LOL

Thank you, Gabby. When it comes to Diabetes we just cannot be too informed. I would think that most of what you find on that site would also be included on this one.

Possibly, but they have an alert email that lets you know when things are coming up. So you might want to get on that. That is their focus, where here it is a different set up. I don't always get to things in time to get them on here.
