Hello! My name is Heather Egbert! I am a senior and we are working on our senior projects right now. When I grow up I would love to be a diabetes educator. I have to do a project that relates to that so I have chosen to have a diabetes awareness day on November 5th. I am going to do a lot of stuff to raise awareness around my high school. I will be putting posters on the walls of the high school with the profiles of people who have diabetes. If you would you be willing to answer a few questions pertaining to your diabetes for a poster please let me know :) It would be so awesome if I could get a lot of people from all over to show my fellow students how common diabetes is.

That sounds like a very neat project.

Actually World Diabetes Day is November 14th but any day of the year is a good time to raise awareness.

What made you want to be a diabetes educator? That is such a specific study. One I am very glad is out there. My diabetes educator was really good and I learned so much from her.

We have a lot of discussions that talk about famous people who have diabetes, and that might be very helpful with your project. I bet a lot of students would be surprised to find out who has diabetes out there.

I do have to ask that your questions not be of any phising nature. No real names, no contact information, things like that. But asking people to share their diabetic journey is admirable.

Hi Heather, I'd be happy to help if you want to message me privately. I think education is great. Good luck.

I'd much rather prefer the questions be put out publicly on this discussion page so everyone can see what questions are asked and none of them would be, as Gabby said "of any phising nature" So far Heather has not been very active in replying to her post. Wonder why that might be?
