Type One Nation: Phoenix

Type One Nation: Phoenix

I want to thank the Phoenix Arizona chapter of the JDRF for inviting me to speak at their Type One Nation event. I met so many people who all just want their lives to be less about managing and a lot more about living. I didn’t want to waste a moment while I was there so I did a Bold With Insulin breakout session, sat in on a Q&A and talked more about the ideas from the Juicebox Podcast on the main stage during lunch. I wished that I could have stayed longer but I needed to make a flight so I could be at my son’s first college baseball game in the morning.

I am already receiving emails and pictures from people who where ready to be bold and immediately began making changes to how they think about using insulin after they went home. It was a (too short) but terrific trip and I would love to go back in the future when I have more time to spend with the D-community in Arizona.

HUGE thanks to Vickie for recommending me for the gig and to the chapter leadership for being bold in how they bring good information to their members.

If you were there and have any pictures that I don’t please send them so that I can share.
