Benefits of Being a Diabetes Advocate
This year Tudiabetes wanted to thank their members by celebrating through the first annual TuDiabetes Awards 2008. A way to recognize the merit of some of their committed members.
I won the award for TD Crusader
The TuDiabetes Crusader: is a member who invests lots of time advocating on behalf of the diabetes community at large.
I am so excited to have won this! Such a cool award!
Here is the video from Manny. I am the last award given.
Also up for grabs were:
TuDiabetes Un-Certified Educator: a member you have learned so much from that it feels like talking to a diabetes educator… without the certification.
TuDiabetes Creative Mind: a member who makes super-creative contributions to the community, as part of a contest or not.
TuDiabetes Geek: a member who comes up with technical answers to problems related to software, gadgets, web sites, etc. that come up in TuDiabetes.
TuDiabetes Comedian: a member who plain-and-simple makes you laugh with his/her comments and contributions.
TuDiabetes Life Coach: a member who is there for you (and others) and gives you support and great advice to carry on in the midst of a challenge.
TuDiabetes Good Eating Fan: a member who advocates for healthy eating… and walks the talk (or rather, eats the talk).
TuDiabetes Active Lifestyle Fan: a member who sets a good example of exercise as part of our lives and as an important element of diabetes management.
Thank you to Manny of Tudiabetes and all the people that nominated me. What a great honor! I will try and keep up the hard work for 2009!!
