President of Diabetes Hands Foundation, the nonprofit responsible for TuDiabetes.org

(I copied my bio from my DHF page, in case you are wondering)

Manny Hernandez is a Venezuelan-born nonprofit leader, a social media author, and a passionate hispanic diabetes advocate and key opinion leader who has lived with LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults) since 2002. In 1994, he completed his undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering in Universidad Metropolitana, Caracas. In 1996 he obtained his Masters degree from Cornell University. Before DHF, he worked with Procter & Gamble, Quepasa.com, Earth911, Pets911, Full Sail University and Ning. He wrote "Ning for Dummies," (April 2009) and collaborated in other books on social media and health 2.0. He is a fully bilingual (Spanish/English), fluent in French and conversational in Italian and German.

In 2007, he started TuDiabetes.org and EsTuDiabetes.org along with his wife, Andreina Davila. In 2008 they co-founded Diabetes Hands Foundation and served as Chairman of the board between 2008 and 2012, growing the board from 5 members to 14, to support the organization's growth beyond half a million US$ in annual revenue. As President of the Diabetes Hands Foundation, he is responsible for program strategy, fundraising, and partnership development. He currently serves as advisor for IDF's Life for a Child Program; USC Annenberg School for Communication: The California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships; Insulindependence, Inc.; and DASH Sports Education.

He has published books on social media and health 2.0 and has delivered inspiring keynotes at conferences hosted by Joslin Diabetes Center, JDRF, The Endocrine Society, and Novartis. He has also spoken at AADE, BlogWorld Expo, Health 2.0, ePatient Connections, Nonprofit Technology Conference, Yale Healthcare (in the US); World Diabetes Congress (in Dubai); and SIMO Network and Salud 2.0 Euskadi (in Spain).

He has been interviewed by the New York Times, NPR, Fox News Health, Bloomberg News, Diabetes Forecast, Univision, El Pais (Spain) and El Universal (Venezuela) on these topics.

As a consultant, Manny helps Fortune 500 as well as startups, nonprofits, for profits and not-just-for-profit companies think through their social strategy to effectively navigate the paradigm of a patient- and customer-centric world.

He has been blogging at askmanny.com since 2002. You can find him on Twitter: @askmanny and read his personal disclosure on his blog.
