It's finally here — the compilation of all the wonderful nuggets of wisdom from YOU, the diabetes community, that you shared with us here during the recent Holiday Survival Sweepstakes event.
In case you missed that whole to-do, we asked PWDs across the community to share some of their best tips about surviving the holiday season with diabetes: on exercise, stress, managing the "diabetes police," travel, and of course, food.
Rather than lose all the wonderful words of wisdom accumulated over the course of the 5-week contest, we've collected them into an eBook that we hope can be used as a reference guide throughout the whole year: Nuggets of Wisdom from the Diabetes Community. The booklet can easily be download in PDF format by clicking on the image below, or by clicking here: diabetesmine-nuggets-ebook_final1.
An enormous SPECIAL THANKS to Gina Capone, who is the new force behind the Diabetes OC site, and to Allison Blass for making the eBook happen!
We hope you'll enjoy the practical wisdom and many colorful images shared here by so many kindred spirits. Any and all feedback on the eBook is welcome, of course.
[Editor's note: it's not really on a stick (yet) — unless you put it on your fave USB device yourself; I just really liked the way that sounded]
