Bits n’ Pieces
A few random items on this sunny (well, in the NYC area anyway) Monday morning:
1. The New York City JDRF Chapter held their Promise Ball on Saturday at the Waldorf Astoria honoring JDRF co-founders Carol and Erwin Lurie who are awesome and even at 80-years-old are still advocating for a cure. I didn’t have a chance to meet the honorees, but I did chat with their son Stephen and his wife, who are lovely people.
As I wrote last week, I bought a pretty new dress for the event. Here’s a picture of it:
Cara asked if I had taken a full-length photo, and while I do have one that shows a bit more of the dress, it didn’t come out that great. The rest of the dress is just black and falls straight to the floor. The interesting part of the dress is at the top.
2. JDRF has published their November e-newsletter and inside they have a link to a survey for adults with type 1 diabetes. So hey, if you’re an AWD, hop on over and fill it out.
3. My seventh session with the JDRF blogger roundtable is now online! This month we’re chatting about diabetes advocacy and research.
4. A few people have asked if there is a World Diabetes Day event in New York City like there was last year. There isn’t. The only event taking place is the JDRF/Novo Nordisk/Discovery Health Youth Forum, for young adults and their families which will be held at the ESPN Zone in Times Square from 11:30-3:30 p.m. on Friday.
