Newsletters Testimonials

    I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing such an awesome newsletter! It always provides such helpful information in a easy to read/understand format. Some times I feel so bombarded with informational webcasts and newsletters but they aren’t convenient for me to participate in or seem some what confusing. I really appreciate receiving this important up-to-date information in a clear and organized way. Equally important, its enjoyable to read! Thank you!

 ˜Jennifer


I absolutely LOVE your newsletter!  It is always so positive and hopeful – something the diabetes community is so in need of.  As a past participant in your education sessions to prepare for the CDE® certification exam, I was privileged to see the heart of you and the team at the center there and how big your concern for people with diabetes is.  Best wishes for your continued success!

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your wonderful and super informative newsletters.  I am a RNC/CDE at a large university medical center and find all the information so helpful.  It is the format that is so wonderful.  It is user friendly and gets right to the point so the information can be easily digested.  Keep up the good work and I hope that you may continue.

I always find your email a great wealth of information. You are indeed such an inspiration to everyone you touched. I’m always excited to read your email and learning from it. Because of your enthusiasm to share I too gets inspired of learning some tricks how to draw blood with no pain or less pain or how to teach patient injecting insulin without fear or talking about nutrition. Whatever you share it surely being spread to people we touched.

God bless you and thank you so much for all the emails you send.
