Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

Save the date

Our friends in Brussels (the IDF, the Blue Circle folks) have announced that the first United Nations observed World Diabetes Day will be November 14th! The theme for the year is Diabetes in Children and Adolescents. Any time you are feeling depressed about your diabetes, just think what it would be like if you lived in a Third World country.

The IDF’s key objective this year is to double the number of children covered by the Life for a Child Program.

They’ve asked me to add an attention-getting banner to LifeAfterDx to help raise awareness. I’m trying to (really Stephanie, I spent all morning working on it!) but I’m still having DSL issues that is making it all but impossible to upload much of anything. Hopefully the $#%&*@# phone company will get this resolved before World Diabetes Day!

Wil,

I am so sorry that the banner was more complicated than it should have been. We've tried to make it easier, but I cannot tell you how appreciative myself and everyone else here at IDF are.

Thank you and take care,
Stephanie Tanner
IDF - Communications Assistant
