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!).

Happy WD-Day

I guess this is our First Birthday as a world power! Happy World Diabetes Day everyone. What? You have nothing to be happy about? Hmmmm… look deep inside, this curse gives all of us a silver lining. If you haven’t found it yet, look harder.

Meantime, I’m off to our “celebration” at the local National Park. The team and I put together a nice little event. Not exactly lighting the Eiffel Tower with blue lights, but my budget is pretty limited.

We’re going to have a group health walk around the grounds. We’ve got some give-always. We met with the owners of all the local restaurants, reviewed their menus and picked D-friendly foods and got ‘em to donate samples.

I have no idea what kind of turn out we’ll have. I’m hoping for 200. I fear we’ll have two. I’ll let you know.

Now, go out to your local event. Show the power of our voice.
