Dear DiabetesSister,

With summer just around the corner, it's time to get out and enjoy the sunshine, longer days and opportunities to get active outside. This month, our experts share their best tips on how to incorporate physical activity into our daily lives, both virtually and outdoors. Take a look, you won't be disappointed.

Until next month, take time to breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the shade of bloomed trees. Be well!


In Sisterhood,

Recently we teamed up with endocrinologist Deena Adimoolam, MD, to answer diabetes and COVID-19 vaccine questions from our community. View the series in our Instagram Highlights or on our YouTube channel.

Nikki was training for her first half marathon at age 42 when she was diagnosed with diabetes. She was shocked when her PCP told her to stop her workouts until she could see her new endo. She shares her journey to balance workouts and diabetes on our Between the Lines page.

Our Experts will help get you moving with tips and video recommendations to make your exercise workouts fun!
