On twitter, I asked, "why is diabetes social networking important to you?" My friend Jenny replied "I can't drive, so going to many tweetups isn't an option. It's nice to have Twitter to 'chat on' with other PWD's."
So when Manny Hernandez of TuDiabetes.com, asked for some help with a project for Diabetes Hand Foundation, I simply couldn't refuse! In an effort to raise diabetes awareness and to prepare for World Diabetes Day (11/14) Manny is asking people affected by diabetes to make a video using one of your five senses to describe how diabetes impacts your life. The project is called "Making Sense of Diabetes" for submissions, the dates are as follows:
Sight - week of Sept 28
Hearing - week of October 5
Touch - week of October 12
Smell - October 19
Taste - October 26
With healthcare falling down on its knees, these social sites are gaining value, it sharing information and strategy, making friends and finding out that the "d thing" has its place and that it doesn't have to consume you, or be ignored!
