I was tempted to call this post, "I'm better in writing."
I really don't like seeing myself on film. But I know, it's time to get with the program. That, and the American Heart Association provided the members of its Heart of Diabetes Connected Council group with free Flip video recorders - pretty cool!
See Scott Johnson's vlog-'splanation here. See also Scott's disclaimer* below, which I have borrowed unabashedly.

* Disclosure: In return for my participation in the connected council meeting I was paid a small honorarium, and given a Flip video recorder to participate in the "Real Stories" initiative. My travel, primary meals, and lodging were also paid for. That does not mean my support and belief in this AHA Project was purchased. Following the food chain up a step, this particular AHA project is currently sponsored by Takeda. All content is that of the author and not reviewed or approved by the American Heart Association or Takeda.
There you go. Any ideas on how to make the heart disease + diabetes message more "sexy" are heartily welcome.
