    Way to go Amy! I’m so happy to know you keep spreading the word far and wide. You are an excellent diplomat for those of us living with DT1. Keep up all the good work you are doing. Looking forward to meeting you at the meeting in New York City in October and really look forward to hearing you in person.

    Hi Amy,

    My name is Justin Guild and I’m a graduate research assistant currently working with Dr. Jeong-Nam Kim ( at Purdue University on a health communication study.

    Specifically, our research explores how information sharing behavior through online communities (such as blogs) influences coping strategies among people with chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes, depression, etc.

    I’m contacting you to seek permission to place a link to our online web survey on your blog to invite readers and other visitors to participate. The survey is purely academic in nature and takes no longer than 5-7 minutes to complete.

    The web survey can be found by clicking on this link:

    In the survey, we use the term “blog” to refer to any online activity where you might read or share information in communities such as personal web logs, internet forums, and discussion boards.

    The findings of this study could lead to better management capacities of chronic diseases as well as an increase in funding for research related to online communities.

    If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me at

    Thank you for your time and consideration.


    Justin Guild

    Since you’ll be in NYC on Oct. 25th, we’d love to have you come to our Bridgewater NJ Step Out event (it’ll be that evening). It’s a 45 minute ride from the city, but well worth the trip. We’re having a band, fireworks, the walk, a haunted trail and a number of other attractions. IF you’d like to come, please let me know. We’d love to have an advocate like you join us. Hopefully we’ll see you there.
