Christel is a force in the diabetes community. Her work with the Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition, and her founding of the Diabetes UnConference are prime reasons why she is such an inspiring individual. The fact that people continue to rally to the causes she supports, and attend the Diabetes UnConference, are proof of her amazing success.  — Stephen

Two years ago in a workshop for diabetes advocacy, I met Christel, an adult person with diabetes (PWD), Type 1 blogger and defender of rights. She handed me a pin for DPAC. I had known about her blog and the UnConference. She may be small, but she is mighty! Advocating for patient rights, raising awareness, incenting change for mydaughter's future!  — Sharon
