Patient Leader

A diabetes advocate since before the "DOC" and on-line support came to be, I have chaired many national advocacy programs including JDRF's International Children's Congress, JDRF's International Goverment Advocacy Program and JDRF's Outreach program. I was named JDRF's 2007 International Volunteer of the Year. I am author of "The Everything Parents Guide to Juvenile Diabetes" and "Raising Teens With Diabetes: A Parent Survival Guide." My blog-- focuses on the positives in raising a child with diabetes to be a happy, successful adult. A recent post on the White House fainting incidence got nearly one million hits in a week.
