Thanks, Aaron for doing a fine job of answering the question. The member submitted news and articles is designed to be a place where members can share information they found about diabetes elsewhere on the web.

Within the news and articles section look for the orange button in the top right that says "Contribute News Now." When you click that button, it will ask you for four things: the title of the article, the author, a brief summary, and the link. (The link is the url or web address that appears in the address bar at the top of your browser window on the page where you found the article that you want to link to. Simply copy and paste it into the "link" field.)

One thing to be careful of, please just post a summary in the summary field. A paragraph or two should be sufficient. If complete articles are pasted into the summary field, it could potentially cause problems.

I hope that helps answer everyone's questions.
