    I just heard about this on dLife tonight. It does seem like a great program. I just have to get my A1c below 7% and then I would qualify. Still trying to get there…

    Sounds like a great program, and I’d like to volunteer for it — I’m a retired high-school teacher, so I’m used to talking in front of all kinds of audiences. I’ll follow the link you put up.

    Thanks so much for all your diabetes advocacy work, Amy! :-)

    Hi Amy,

    I’ve been to this site many times….always cool to see the person behind the blog! As an A1C champion, I use the internet as my primary source for information and your site always ‘bubbles’ up first.

    Hey Amy,
    My name is Samantha Irvin and I really enjoyed your presentation on Saturday. I have been an A1C champion for 1 1/2 yrs with my mom. We are a parent child team and I know she really liked what you did on Saturday. I never knew there were so many ways for diabetics to keep in touch on the Web. I am already looking at some of the blogs you talked about including this one! Thanks again

    Hi Amy,
    Again, thanks for sharing info about the DOC and the main tools of social media with our A1C Champions. I’m a fan of your site and always find the most current d talk right here. Keep up the great work you and your team do for PWD.
    Also, a shout out to Allison. Enjoyed being with you in Raleigh.

    Thank you so very much for your presentation. Your information on living with diabetes and the impact of social media was amazing! My husband can not wait to log in and read all he can on how my diabetes effects those close to us and how they can get help for themselves. He is extremely effected by my diabetes and hope that your blog has some helpful information for him but if not we hope to give you some insite on this topic.


    Do not stop doing what you do! IT IS AMAZING:)

    Best, Hélène

    Amy –

    In my recent comment I neglected to write that I too am an A1c Champion since 2005. Currently, I live in Media, PA but spent most of my life in NYC area. During your presentation, a fellow Champion asked you about the hispanic population and what resources are out there for them. Being of hispanic descent, I would like to offer any help I can give if you should do any resource or topics for them.

    Many thanks and again thank you,

    Hélène Colon-Raphael

    Thanks so much for Saturday’s presentation. I’ve been an A1c Champion for six years now and, I can tell you that it is a quite rewarding experience when you she audience members that finally “get it”.

    Can’t wait to start following your blog.

    Amy as you know I was in Tokyo during the a1c Champion meeting but it’s great so many of my fellow peer-mentors got to meet you and hear about “the mine.”

    Yes, there is something amazing about a patient coming up to you after a presentation saying, “I finally get it – it’s up to me to take care of my diabetes!”

    Seems so simple to we who are showered with knowledge and resources, but as you said, so many don’t have the same privileges. And, btw, although I didn’t pay you to write the “great Riva Greenberg,” it is nice to read ;-)

    Your presentation on Saturday was outstanding. I have been an A1C Champion since 2008. It is so uplifting to see the response of those after listening to the information which we give them!

    Nice to meet you in person. It is funny when you are following somebody’s site or blog on line, and then you finally meet that person, .. I appreciate what you do for the diabetes community. Keep “fighting the good fight” :)

    There is so much available with DOC – almost to the point of overwhelming. If only diabetes could free up some time…

    Great source of information. My daughter and I really enjoyed your talk on Sat. Just catching up at home and I am renewed with all the positive energy and “family feel” being with others affected by diabetes. It is so important to reach out and have a place to go any time any day. Thank you again.
