Dear DiabetesSister,

It's hard to believe it's already and we are welcoming National Diabetes Awareness Month (#NDAM). This month, I challenge you to educate those who may have preconceived notions or misunderstandings about diabetes, support friends and family living with diabetes, and find time for self-care.

In Sisterhood,
Anna Norton, MS, CEO
26 Triumphant (NOT Perfect!) Years THRIVING with Diabetes
Our PODS Leaders recently gathered in Chicago to learn, share, and connect at our fifth annual Leadership Institute. Read CEO Anna Norton's insights from the weekend, and then check out our photo gallery!

* Thank you to our Leadership Institute sponsors Boehringer Ingelheim, Lilly, Merck, Novo Nordisk, Regeneron, and Xeris
This month, Asha B. and Erin A. both share their journeys with eating disorders and diabetes, and discuss the road to their recovery. Check out these compelling stories on our Between the Lines page.

Last month, DiabetesSisters staged a week-long takeover of the Beyond Type 2 and Beyond Type 1 Instagram pages. Each day, a different woman from our community was featured on each page!

*Special thanks to Beyond Type 1 for their continued partnership.
This month, our Experts offer advice and tips on pregnancy, organization, and living your best diabetes life!
November is Diabetes Awareness Month (#NDAM), and we continue to spread awareness with two great articles! First, DiabetesSisters Board Member David W shares what he sees as a "type 3" who supports his wife on her journey with diabetes. Then, our friend, Susan Weiner, MS, RDN, CDE, FAADE shares facts on type 2 diabetes, heart health, and diabetes counseling.
Women living with diabetes are more likely to develop eating disorders than their peers without diabetes. Our brochure discusses the different types of eating disorders and how you can get help. Download it, in both English and Spanish, from our Library.
