Here it is: the final segment in the new "Learning with Liberty" video series I've hosted. Not surprisingly, this one is based on the book I co-authored with Dr. Richard Jackson of Joslin Diabetes Center, all about how to get a handle on your overall health with diabetes by monitoring and understanding five key medical tests (I would list them, but I want you to watch the video - grin).

Speaking of grin, at some point in the middle of taping, they told me to smile, so I did.  Oy.

The Liberty folks seem pretty happy with this series, and they're even talking about having me do more. Wow!  Meanwhile, good 'ol Wilford is still standing up for them.  In fact, the guy's apparently done a lot more than just the fabled Liberty commercials.  For his lifetime advocacy efforts, he's just won himself an award from the American Diabetes Association.  You can view him talkin' turkey about his medical reports, with quite the curmudgeonly sense of humor, HERE.

While you're on YouTube, you can now view my video series and also grab the codes for embedding them elsewhere. So far, Liberty has uploaded Insulin Pumps Explained (Part 1) and Pump Models and Features (Part 2).  Enjoy.
