It was a great day this Saturday. Many more people came out for the San Francisco World Diabetes Day event than last year. Probably because the Ferry Building is centrally located and a wonderful place to catch the attention of passers'-by.
See how pretty:
I've got more photos to share, but before I go on, an announcement: How many of you have run into someone newly diagnosed with diabetes? Don't you wish you knew where to send them, to help them understand the basics? In honor of World Diabetes Day especially, Dr. Jackson and I have pushed out our Newly Diagnosed care plan on Keas.com.
It's meant to walk folks through those looming first questions when you get blindsided by this illness, like Why did I get it? What can I eat? and What's going to happen to me now? The plan is still pretty basic and far from perfect; we do plan many enhancements, but we also hope it's useful in its current form for some new members of the tribe. Check it out, free of charge, by signing up here.
