The mission of DSMA (Diabetes Social Media Advocacy) is to promote social networking in all its forms (Facebook, twitter, YouTube, etc.) in order to educate and support all people affected by diabetes. The diabetes online community provides the opportunity to share and understand the challenges of physical, mental and emotional needs of this chronic condition. In an effort to share the mission of DSMA with the community, we decided to offer DSMA Live, DSMA en Vivo and DSMA Live: 'Rents to empower, connect, support people affected by diabetes. DSMA Live: 'Rents, DSMA en Vivo and DSMA Live are provided by Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation (DCAF).
