This week I was featured in HealthiVibe’s “The Patient Lens” blog series, where I discussed the challenges of diabetes stigma and misunderstanding, as well as the need for advocacy. To read the blog post, please see here.
HealthiVibe does great work for patients, and for the healthcare community at large, by representing the human voice in medicine with an emphasis on the importance of clinical trials.
I am of the opinion that participants in clinical trials are of the very bravest and selfless amongst us. Those of us currently taking medication owe our improved quality of life to clinical trial participants who stepped up and said “We’re willing to do this” when these medications were being tested.
Thank you to HealthiVibe, and to clinical trial participants, for all that you do.
