The World Needs More Dancing And Puppies.

As I climb my way out of the Stuff I Need To Catch Up On After Traveling Vortex, I've taken a bit of a writing breather here. I'll be back at it next week, but until then... semi-narcissistic bullet points.

  • You'll find a guest post from me about diabetes and social media over here.
  • I was able to record a couple of You Can Do This videos while at the Roche Social Media Summit this week, and when you combine those with the videos still left to share from FFL, my head explodes a little bit. Don't worry; I'll clean it up. (But seriously - the videos are awesome, and I'm excited to get them ready to share.)
  • Speaking of the Summit, I want to share a couple of things (at least) from what I experienced there - it was my first time attending, and I was grateful to be among so many good people doing good things. More on that next week.
  • My Verio meter seems to have gone missing. At what point do I put its picture on a milk carton? I can pay you in test strips... that I can't use, if I can't find the meter... 
  • Have you ever met a sport team mascot that could booty dance? I have.

  • I actually can't remember if I've mentioned this here yet, so forgive me if I'm repeating myself...
    a couple of months back, my friend Chris made me aware of a scholarship program for a conference I'd never heard of: Medicine X. It's an academic conference taking place this September, created and run by Stanford University (I KNOW RIGHT) and designed to address "the intersection of medicine and emerging technologies". I ended up being selected as one of the 35 e-patients who will be receiving scholarships to attend - which is way, way cool of them to work so hard to get the patient voice represented. This week, an e-book was released, introducing the e-patients that will be at the conference. (My section is essentially a rephrasing of my scholarship application.) I'm honored to be listed amongst such great company!
  • And lastly, the world finally has a 24-hour Corgi Cam. Happy Friday.
