A friend of mine is speaking at an event in DC that will include some TV writers that are working on a campaign to promote diabetes awareness specific to management techniques, decrease stigma related to diabetes, and empower those with diabetes to live full and productive lives.
Their hope is to meet these objectives by hitting up mass populations via television programing. She has asked me to help her gather some feedback. So if you have a second could you answer these two questions:
1. What do you think about how diabetes is currently portrayed in television programing?
2. What would you like to see change in television program in reference to the portrayal of people with diabetes?
