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!

Hello Lorraine,
I wanted to stop by to say THANK YOU once more for your kind donation back in September.

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

Welcome to the community. We hope you'll be a source of information and support. :)

I generally point all those who work in the diabetes field to our Terms of Use so you can familiarize yourself with our community policies. Again, welcome. We're glad to have advocates for our health here!
