Happy June! I hope you are enjoying the warmth of sunshine as you peruse this newsletter, full of great information and resources for you.

This week, I am heading out to the American Diabetes Association's 79th Scientific Sessions, where I am excited to learn more about what's happening in diabetes, as well as meet with some of our trusted partners and colleagues. I'll share my insights next month. Until then, be well!

In Sisterhood,
