Introducing “We Can Do This” – a series of group videos where people with diabetes come together around a common topic and share their diagnosis stories, lessons learned and advice for others.

This series kicks off with Volume 1: Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes as an Adult. Meet Dayle, Brian, Sara, Debra and Chris. They’ll tell you about experiences like being misdiagnosed with type 2, what was hard about adjusting to their “new life”, how diabetes and sex co-exist, and what advice they have for others diagnosed with T1 later in life.

If they can do this, you can do this too.

 

Have an idea for a topic you’d like to see one of these videos made about? Know someone (like you, maybe?) that would be willing to participate in one? Email me.
