Event Description

This event already occurred.  Watch the recording here!


Kerri Morrone Sparling was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on September 11, 1986, and for much of her life, she was the only diabetic she knew.

She started Six Until Me in May of 2005 because she was tired of Googling "diabetes" and coming up with little more than a list of complications and frightening stories.

But then she learned about blogs, and the power of sharing our stories online.  When she first started blogging, she was one of four or five diabetes bloggers.  Now she is a proud member of a vast diabetes community who prove every day that we not alone with this disease. 

Kerri is a patient blogger, freelance writer, and social media consultant.

But there's more to Kerri than diabetes....
