    in Health

    Working with T1D teen. Natalie and Jim from CWD. 


    During the show chatting on Twitter at #DSMA


    Natalie Bellini, BSN, RN, CDE, has had type 1 diabetes since she was a young child. Within a year of finishing nursing school, she started to care for people with diabetes, focusing first on diabetes in pregnancy then pediatrics and insulin requiring adults. She has worked on the medical side of camps for children and teens in Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania. She has spoken nationally and internationally as an expert in both working with teens and their parents with diabetes as well as infusion set choice, usage and maintenance. Her fundamental goal when developing the teenage curriculum for Children with Diabetes conferences is that each and every teen that attends finds a passion in life and pursues it.


    Jim Vail was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1986 at age 19 while he was a sophomore at the State University of New York at Fredonia. Jim graduated with a degree in Media Communications and was a producer for CNBC Business news in Washington, D.C., for 9 years all the while wrestling with the unpredictability of short and intermediate acting insulin. After finally going on a pump in October of 2001 and 'getting his life back,' Jim began volunteering at CWD in the teen program where he quickly became one of the Program Coordinators. He's worn, tested or personally used virtually every product represented in the Exhibit Hall. Jim has recently accepted the position of Director of Development and Communications for CWD.

    DSMALive 'Rents: Steve Richert Living Vertical

    in Health

    Ever since he was a little kid, growing up in upstate New York, Steve dreamed of climbing mountains. What his locale lacked in topography he substituted with tree climbing–always imagining myself “way out there” on some epic rock face. His father was an iron worker who built sky scrapers in New York City. Climbing things was a connection they shared even though his dad is still awaiting the day that Steve hangs up my rope and rack in favor of a “real job and a haircut”. Steve was never very motivated and when he could take the easy way out of any type of physical activity, he did.


    Then one day, when he was a 16 year-old sophomore in highschool, the option of taking the easy way vanished when Steve became a type 1 diabetic. In a flash he began to realize that the luxury of postponing “life” was an illusion that he could not afford to buy into any longer. He knew that unless he began pushing back hard against the conventional wisdom of what life with diabetes should look like, that he would be trapped in a world of fear, trying to just survive the complications he kept hearing and reading about while living life to the bare minimum.


    Climbing is a universal symbol of freedom, personal responsibility and self reliance. Steve embraced climbing fully–not only because he wanted to climb, but because he wanted to show himself that he could take control of his life and that diabetes would NOT limit him. In 2012, after pursuing this way of life for about 14 years, Steve founded LivingVertical and took on Project365 – selling all his “stuff” to live on the road and climb every single day across North America for a year. His hope was to share a message of empowerment with others who live with T1D while revolutionizing the way that the public sees this “invisible” illness.

    Stephen Richert has learned what  diabetes has meant to him over the last 14 years since he was diagnosed: an opportunity to embrace challenge, one step at a time!
    Stephen grew up thinking that climbing was something that was meant for “other people” who were braver or stronger, but when  faced with a life altering diagnosis with T1D at age 16, he decided that he couldn’t afford to leave the great deeds to the great. He wanted to make his mark and get a piece of the action even if he was a complete beginner with little natural athleticism.
