I met my new endocrinologist and CDE today. The short version goes something like this: I love everything about them. And I’m getting a t:slim. And I feel great about everything.
Tell ’em Stanley.
The longer version requires a some fragmented thoughts and sentences. Continue reading
Last month I sent Regina Holliday a jacket and a little write up summarizing my diabetes advocacy efforts thus far. Today Regina is sending my jacket back with this mural painted on the back. It’s beautiful. I might have cried a bit when I first saw it. I can’t wait to wear this during Medicine X.
Seriously. It’s incredible.
Last week I spoke with Dr. Mike Sevilla about Medicine X and my cats distracting me in front of a webcam. But mostly about Medicine X. Here’s the video.
The big takeaway is that Medicine X has something called a Global Access Program that features a livestream of all sessions in the main hall for the entire conference. For free. If you’ve ever had a passing interest in anything I’ve had to say about Medicine X, you should sign up – it’s free. If you applied for an ePatient Scholarship but didn’t make the final cut, you should sign up – it’s free. If you want to start thinking about diabetes advocacy from a different perspective, you should sign up – it’s free. If you care about things like data access, patient empowerment, digital health care solutions, technology’s impact on medicine, you should sign up – it’s free.
Basically, if you’re reading this blog post, you should sign up – it’s free.
Dayle and I went to a recording of Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me tonight. It was fantastic.
From a podcaster’s perspective, it was fascinating to see how the show actually comes together including the rereads and cold opens that go into the final edit. And in case it wasn’t evident from the shows that air on Sundays, Peter Sagal is a really funny guy. Being that quick-witted on stage takes some serious talent.
If this show ever comes to your neck of the woods, you should jump at the opportunity to be part of the audience. It’s well worth the price of admission.
This? Right here? Is what all of the fuss was about.
Thanks again for participating.
