The publisher of Think Like A Pancreas has asked me to start working on a 3rd edition. I guess that’s good news… at least it shows that somebody is actually reading it.One of my favorite aspects of the book is a graphic that my daughter Marley drew for me showing the three interlocking factors that are necessary for quality diabetes management:The right tools, The right skills, and The right attitude/mindset.
That last item is really, really important.So many people go to diabetes classes and get the latest high-tech gadgets but fail to reach their goals.That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that Diane Herbert, MSS/LSW/CDE has rejoined our team to provide emotional health services for our clients.
Diane is a licensed medical social worker, certified family mediator and diabetes educator with a focus on helping individuals and families work through the clinical and emotional challenges of living with type-1 diabetes.
