Ooh, lucky me. I ran into two of my diabetes heroes at the Diabetes Technology Society Meeting late last week. More soon on the new developments I heard about there. But for today, please enjoy these video testimonials on diabetes & heart health.
First, from Francine Kaufman, MD, a world-renown pediatric endocrinologist at USC, former ADA president, and now vice president of Global Medical Affairs, for the Medtronic Diabetes:
And from Phil Southerland, competitive cyclist and co-founder of Team Type 1 (and Team Type 2 as well!)
NOTE: These vlogs are part of my contribution to the American Heart Association's Heart of Diabetes campaign. I also wrote a column on the topic this month over at DiabeticConnect titled, "Be True to Your (Diabetic) Heart."
If you happen to have a message to share about diabetes and heart attack or stroke, feel free to submit your story here. Thank you, and Be Well!
