Diabetes Connections: listen to the power of “me too.”

This podcast features prominent diabetes advocates, authors and speakers and includes personal stories of connection from people with diabetes and their friends and family.

“Since my son’s diagnosis just before he turned two, I’ve been amazed at the resilience and strength of the diabetes community,” says producer and host Stacey Simms. “Diabetes can be a very isolating condition and these connections empower us in a way that is a vital compliment to medical care.”

Diabetes Connections will focus mostly on type 1 diabetes but will feature interviews and information on all types of diabetes. Stacey hopes to guide and encourage listeners to find their own local real-life diabetes connections. 

Stacey’s son has lived with type 1 diabetes since 2006 and she’s been blogging about her family’s experience with diabetes ever since. She is an award-winning radio news host and TV anchor/reporter with more than 20 years of broadcast news experience. More at www.staceysimms.com
