Sugar Surfing

Patient Leader

Stephen Ponder, MD CDE and Kevin McMahon have collaborated since 2002. Dr. Ponder was most recently awarded the 2018 Diabetes Educator of the Year by the American Association of Diabetes Educators for his work in breaking down barriers to patient self-directed dynamic diabetes management. This break from tradition is taught using workshops, books and social media posts and conversations. Our team includes several grass roots local organizers whose volunteerism have made more than a dozen workshops throughout the USA, UK and IRL possible. The team behind Sugar Surfing is deserving of the award and the publicity that goes with it to reach more people with #t1d
