Lorraine, congratulations on your election to the Board! I am Chairman of the Board of a nonprofit Elder advocacy corporation. I know how much work this could mean and appreciate your contribution. DHF has been enormously helpful to me in managing and accepting my own diabetes. DHF was the first diabetes community where I felt I belonged. LADA, although Type1, is less common and largely an afterthought. That's not the case at DHF!

Also, I wanted to give you a very special heads up about this year's Big Blue Test:
