Susan

Health Activist

My name is Susan Weiner. I'm a registered dietitian-nutritionist and certified diabetes educator with a private practice in New York. I've been helping people live healthier lives for the past 25 years. This year I was on the planning committee for the New York City initiative for Marjorie's Fund, a non-profit global type 1 diabetes organization which provides education and resources for people in need of assistance. I also contribute my expertise for diabetessisters.org, a non-profit organization that promotes education and advocacy for women who have diabetes. My new book "The Complete Diabetes Organizer: Your Guide to a Less Stressful and More Manageable Diabetes Life", Spry Publishing 2013 was written to help people with diabetes and their caregivers organize their hectic lives with diabetes. I'm passionate about sharing diabetes information in any way possible, so I write for many publications including Walgreens "Diabetes & You". I was recently voted one of the Top 10 Diabetes Education Bloggers by iVillage.com and am honored to receive the 2014 Distinguished Alumna Award from SUNY Oneonta where I attended undergraduate school. I was the contributing medical producer for dLife TV and am currently a member of the dLife medical advisory board.
