Today is my final day working at the American Diabetes Association. Working here for the past 4+ years has been some of the most rewarding of my professional career. It has been an honor to work beside so many passionate advocates and inspiring people knowing we are making a better life for me, my fiancée, and the millions living with and impacted by type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
This was the opening to my Farewell. note to my peers at the Home Office and throughout the field this morning informing them that my time at the Association has come to an end.
For all the emails I’ve sent, that was one of the most difficult to complete. But as that chapter comes to a close, now I get to look ahead to starting a new chapter. The mixture of opportunity, potential, and uncertainty is quite potent. But I’ve got a good feeling about this next phase of my life.
As far as administration is concerned, I’m not going to change any of my disclaimers – I’m still not a doctor, and this is still a personal blog. But I will update my employment disclosures, because, you know, ethics and whatnot.
Here’s to whatever comes next.
