Thanks to everyone who joined our first three Diabetes Awareness Month Twitter chats. With the help of our moderator Jewels Doskicz, our weekly featured guests, and Diabetic Connect members like you, we have had lively chats about living with and coping with diabetes. If you haven’t yet joined in Diabetic Connect’s Twitter chats, here is your last chance. Our final Twitter chat will be Tuesday, November 25 at 9:00 p.m. EST. We will be discussing how to deal with Thanksgiving as a diabetic. You can join the conversation by following Diabetic Connect on Twitter and using #DCDE (Diabetic Connect Diabetes Education).
A holiday that is completely centered on eating can be a tough day for a diabetic. But, there are many things you can do to enjoy the holiday just as much as your non-diabetic friends and family. Join us on November 25 to share your favorite diabetic-friendly Thanksgiving and holiday recipes, tips, and tricks and learn some new ideas from the Diabetic Connect community.
Jewels Doskicz, Diabetic Connect advocate and registered nurse, will moderate the Twitter chat, and will be joined by members of the Diabetic Connect staff sharing their favorite diabetic recipes and tips for surviving the holidays. Jewels will be posting questions for you to respond to via tweets with #DCDE.
If you are new to Twitter chats and are unsure how to join or if you need a refresher, please see Diabetic Connect’s article here that will instruct you on how to get involved.
