    Nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and about six million people use life-saving insulin to manage their diabetes. The disease is complex and often overwhelming, creating barriers that may prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities as everyone else.


     


    Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietician, Tami Ross joins us today to talk about things people with diabetes can do to simplify their lives. Welcome!


     




    What are some of the challenges people with diabetes face on a daily basis?



    What tips do you have for people to best control their diabetes?



    Can you tell us about the “Dynamic Duos” education campaign and the role diabetes educators play in working with patients?



    Are there new technologies that reduce the steps to insulin injection and conceal the needle?



    How much of a game changer is this new needle where you don’t have to actually see the needle itself? How big of a deal is that for diabetes patients?



    Where can we go for more information?


    Diabetes requires continual blood sugar monitoring, meal planning, exercise and stress management. Medication may be needed for the rest of their lives, including insulin, which often requires multiple injections per day.

    Robert McNally shares his life lessons

    in Lifestyle

    Author Robert McNally shares his life lessons. Reminiscing about the "good 'ol days” can drum up some interesting memories of days gone by, a simpler time when the biggest concern children had was how many minutes they could play outside until Mom and Dad noticed the streetlights were on.  After all, that was the universal signal that it was time to hightail it into the house.  Author Robert McNally's hilarious recollection of his childhood memories, in The Memoir of a Boy on His Dangerous Journey trilogy is reminiscent of Huck Finn.  



    The trilogy includes two volumes to-date:  I Had Jelly on My Nose and A Hole in My Breeches (vol. 1), Sister Superior's Thumb, the Pope's Ring and the End of Childhood (vol. 2), and the final book in the trilogy is currently being penned.

    I Had Jelly on My Nose and A Hole in My Breeches (vol. 1) highlights McNally's childhood during WWII and the Great Depression when he grew up near a crematory and a jail. This wide-eyed, young boy's inner circle included members of his family, inmates of the county jail, and his best friend Rosemary. In his surroundings were gypsies, beggars and hobos.  

    The second volume of the trilogy, Sister Superior's Thumb, the Pope's Ring and the End of Childhood, continues on with McNally's adventures as he enters adolescence.  One day he picked himself up and walked out of school and did not return. Three months later he was registered in a different one. 


    Robert McNally writes about his life's adventures growing up in Ridgewood and Middle Village, NY, at the coaxing of friends and family.  Insurance auditor, turned writer, McNally now resides in New York with his wife.

    David Bianchi shares life lessons from Blue Chip Kids

    in Lifestyle

    Author David Bianchi Explains Why He Wrote BLUE CHIP KIDS, What Every Child and Parent Should Know About Money, Investing and the Stock Market


     


    It's not surprising that most teens know more about social media than they do about basic financial skills. On April 1st, we have a special interview with a father who was frustrated by the lack of "entertaining" financial teaching materials for his 13-year-old son. That's why attorney and investor David W. Bianchi wrote:BLUE CHIP KIDS: What Every Child and Parent Should Know About Money, Investing, and the Stock Market. His new book demystifies the basic principles about money matters and provides a much-needed introduction for children (and their parents) to the financial world around them. 


    WHAT YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT BLUE CHIP KIDS:



    Paying for things (checking accounts, credit and debit cards & electronic bill pay)
    Understanding currencies, the Euro, Bitcoins and exchange rates
    Budgeting and debt, financial statements and net worth
    How to teach your kids about dividends, yields, puts and calls
    The basics of buying and selling stocks


     


    Bianchi is a Miami, Fla., attorney who is the former chairman of GnuBIO Inc., a DNA sequencing start-up, a board member of Affomix Corporation, an antibody start-up and vice-chair of Florida Savings Bank. For more info, go to www.bluechipkids.com.
