Dear Hallie
Two weeks from now, I hope that you'll be joining me and the rest of the type 1 community for our first ever Type 1 Talk live broadcast on World Diabetes Day. We've got a great line up of topics (thanks to everyone who voted!) and we'll be announcing presenters this week.  
Whether you've made your plans for WDD or not, please take a moment to hear from two JDRF supporters about why they wanted to get involved with Type 1 Talk.  
Check out a video from Crystal Bowersox, American Idol finalist, on why Type 1 Talk is so important to her.  After watching her video, click here to read why Hallie Addington, Ohio JDRF volunteer, got involved with Type 1 Talk
Crystal B Type 1 Talk

It's not too late to join in on Type 1 Talk!  Remember, I'll be holding a Q&A session via our JDRF UStream channel ( this Thursday, 11/4 at 7pm EDT and again on Sunday, 11/7 at 3pm EDT.  This is a great opportunity to ask your questions and see how the UStream broadcast will work on 11/14.  Of course, you can always send your questions or concerns to me via email at as well.

Yeah, me and Crystal.  We're tight!

Not really... although I think Mama Sox is really cool!  I'm honored to be on the same email with her!

Give some serious thought to Type 1 Talk....

Kerri Sparling, diabetes blogger of Six Until Me, will be one of the people hosting the "show"!

You can host your own event or search for one close to you!  It's a great way to come together as a community and celebrate WDD!

ps... that person you saw of Bret Michael's show... was HEIDI from D-Tales!  Woo-Hoo Heidi! 



  1. Can I get an autograph when we have a MEGA D MAMA MEET UP?
