VLNS’ new interview series, Coffee Dates, will feature conversations with healthcare enthusiasts from all walks of life in a brief “getting to know you” template. Frankly, my diabetes story has been the same old song lately. We abso-frickin-lutely need a cure, and in the meantime we live our best with this disease along for the ride. Hearing others’ perspectives has always helped me to mitigate these emotions, to take a break from my own struggles and to see the grace by which others handle their own.
Likewise, I want the diabetes community to be cognizant of the good work that other health advocacy communities are doing. Stanford Medicine X has granted me that blessing, and in my own small way I’d love to pay it forward here.
Look for Coffee Dates coming soon!
