Emily, excellent videochat agenda and presenter! Are the chats recorded?

Comment by Emily Coles on July 24, 2012 at 3:51pm

Our wonderful member, Albert, in Spain sent me some great questions about the TuDiabetes videochat program, and I'm posting my answers here, for the benefit of all:

1. What can members expect to get out of the videochats?

The overarching aim of the TuD videochat program is to give members another way to engage in the community and learn.  Some of our presenters are experts in diabetes-related research, some in patient care, some in diabetes technology, exercise and diabetes, etc.  We also have presenters who are pursuing unusual careers (professional musicians, authors, celebrity chef etc.), who speak about the experience of having diabetes and doing what they do.  We hope that every member of the community will find a variety of topics and speakers who interest them, and will log on to participate in that event and connect with fellow community members as they do so.

2.  Should we come prepared with questions?

Bringing questions to the videochat events is a great idea, but not required.  Frequently people come up with questions as the presenter is speaking, but if you have specific questions on the speaker's topic even before the event begins then by all means come prepared to ask them!  We want these talks to be interactive.

3. If yes to #2, what kinds of questions are appropriate?

Any question directly relating to the speaker's topic is appropriate, and if it turns out that person does not know the answer, they'll just say so (and hopefully direct you to another source).

4. Are the videochats useful to members who do not live in the US?

So far, none of the videochats we've hosted have been directed solely to members in any particular area of the world (US included).  They are informative in a general sense and the information applies no matter where you are.  An exception to this is if a presenter talks about a medication that is not on the market world-wide (or otherwise not available in some places, for any variety of reasons).  However we haven't had any presenters speak solely about any one treatment or medication, and members who do not have access to a treatment or medication in their area are encouraged to state that and ask the presenter to discuss alternatives.

I'm so bummed you can't join us for this one, Nel! But you've certainly got a VERY good reason. Good for you!
