I feel like my life is on this trajectory, like I am being swept up by the current and carried away on this unexpected path toward diabetes advocacy (of all things!). And I’m feeling ungrounded. I just never saw myself as this kind of person. But why not? Maybe it’s time for me to stop being passive and letting the current carry me. Maybe I need to stick my feet in the sand and stop to have a look around. Is this what I want? Is this who I am? If being a diabetes advocate means helping others live well with diabetes, then the answer is yes.
On that note, I just applied to the WEGO Health Activist Speakers Bureau and I thought some of you might be interested in learning more about it as well – it’s a great way for Health Activists to share our stories, raise awareness and get the word out about the work we’re doing.
Members of the WEGO Health Activist Speakers Bureau receive exclusive invitations to present at conferences, speak to members of the media, and be featured on WEGO Health.
