Diabetes, Et Cetera

we're in this together

Education and Features

I enjoy using my journalistic training and experience as an essayist to help readers keep on top of interesting issues and developments in diabetes in language that’s relatable and easy to understand.  In addition to writing a variety of features for Sanofi-Aventis’s diabetes site, The DX, I also proposed the idea of the “Dear Diabetes” column, which answers common and/or quirky questions about diabetes. Among other queries: Do emotions affect blood sugar? Why is pizza so difficult? And, of course, why does insulin smell like Bandaids?

I also frequently do interviews and features for A Sweet Life.

Sample features:

How Does Your Diabetes Educator Make You Feel?

Mindfulness Meditation, and Diabetes Management

What is LADA?

The First Step Toward an Artificial Pancreas: An Interview with JDRF’s Aaron Kowalski

I also am keenly interested in improving diabetes education, particularly surrounding nutrition, and have several project ideas for which I’d love to find a partner.
