If there is anyone on earth who has taken personal experienced and turned it into an ‘online’ university for diabetes, it is Gary Scheiner’s Integrated Diabetes Services where anyone, anywhere can be taught a better diabetes management style linking into his site. No more diabetes police hounding away (parents……that’s us) but solid and sure techniques to live a better diabetes life right in the privacy of where you sit.. Gary has perfected it to a razor-sharp approach which includes his ‘Think Like a Pancreas’ teaching style and it is no wonder the American Association of Diabetes Educators named him their 2014 Educator of the Year.
If you or a family member need help……look into Gary’s site.

For Diabetes Awareness Month:
This month, I will be highlighting someone in the diabetes community. They may be people you know, or might not know, but they give of themselves to make this world, our world, with diabetes a special place. I will not get to everyone this month, but it is my hope that perhaps you can be introduced to some of those you may not know.
I’m certainly not the definitive on who should be included….you are. If you think I should include someone, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do what I can to include that person as well. Welcome to diabetes awareness month.
I am a diabetes dad.
