Call in to speak with the host
DSMA Live: continuing the converstation with Courtney "C". Co-Hosts Scott K. Johnson, George Simmons and Cherise Shockley, Founder of Diabetes Social Media Advocacy. Topic:Things without diabetes should know about people living with diabetes.
C, sometimes known as “Courtney” outside of the online community, is a registered dietitian in her home state of Iowa. She is an avid Iowa Hawkeye fan and can often be found spending her Saturdays in the fall yelling at the TV and doing the “touchdown dance.” She has been living with type 1 diabetes since 1989. Diagnosed at age 5, she doesn’t remember life without chronic illness. C was introduced to the DOC a couple years ago through the JDRF sponsored website, Juvenation. She soon joined Twitter and then began blogging at C’s Life With D. C realizes living life with D is difficult for everyone in any stage of life, living with any form of diabetes. This led her to her career choice and ultimate goal of becoming a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE). She hopes to help change the lives of everyone struggling through diabetes. C shares her life story openly and honestly. She hopes her experiences provide reassurance to everyone living with diabetes – letting them know they are never alone.
It's good to talk.
