Greetings!

It's Friday. The meat is on the smoker for a lunchtime meetup. The air is washed clean (well, as clean as possible here in NJ!) And, with absolutely no logical connection to those thoughts, here's a valuable reminder from Deb Ng to carefully choose our words. Because we always need reminding...!

Friday Focus on Patients
We all know that diabetes is a huge and growing problem. Here are a couple resources for patients, caregivers, and HCPs:

DiabetesOne Portal - created by Impactiviti to consolidate news and blog feeds, and other resources, for people with/interested in diabetes. The top diabetes ePatient bloggers can be found here.

Heal2gether - site designed to educate patients and caregivers on the monitoring and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, a major and often unmentioned problem (disclosure: Impactiviti consulted on social media strategy). Also a related Twitter feed.
