Being diagnosed with a chronic disease can be one of life’s scariest moments. As someone who works with newly diagnosed diabetic patients often, I understand the fear, confusion, and “now what?” attitude that can quickly follow.
Last summer (hello blondie!) I paired with the PROVE campaign to develop a video that would be shown to new diabetic patients, as encouragement to get them started on a management plan. The series also features interviews with a Certified Diabetic Educator, Physical Therapist, Pharmacist, & Physician.
It is beyond awkward to watch yourself on camera. Wow! I know I use my hands when I speak, but this might be taking it a little far? My Italian ancestors should be proud :)
Hope you enjoy, feel free to share with others who need words of encouragement and/or motivation.
Have a great weekend!
