Tell us about you (Short, optional bio): Type 1 diabetic for 26+ years; diagnosed in high school.  I have been married for 20 years.  We have a 14 yr. old daughter and a dog.  I have always been passionate about being healthy, so becoming a diabetic only made being healthy an even greater priority.  I used to keep being diabetes a secret, but in the last three years, I have become more vocal in the diabetes community.  I am currently an online member of 2-3 Diabetes support groups.  I chair our local Diabetes Today Resource Team (DTRT) which includes members of the community, healthcare, and other organizations who work with diabetics.  We sponsor prevention (screenings) and educational events throughout the year.  I teach Stanford University's evidence-based Diabetes Self-Management Program classes, and I'm currently on the Statewide Diabetes Plan team for the state of IL.  (IL was one of two states who received a grant to do this.)
