Big news alert!
‘Are you okay?’ These three simple words could change someone’s day.
Last week, I spent the week at Gold Coast attending the Roche Educators Day and Australian Diabetes Society & Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADS-ADEA) Annual Scientific Meeting. Among all the sessions I attended, one stood out and stuck with me.
“Education is gold, because no one can take it away from you once you have it” – Jane Speight at the opening of the Roche Educators Day 2016.
I have a terrible tendency to wave away minor colds and work through them. Except this time round, what I had turned out to be more than a little cold but what looks like a kidney infection.
Last week, I went back to my endo to discuss my results (or lack thereof) from the genetics clinic. The consultation was mostly routine after that initial disappointment. We discussed news and research happenings in the diabetes world and new technology. But as we went through the results from my recent lab tests, things took a different spin.
Last week was an emotional week for me. Together with OzDOC, we said farewell and celebrated the life of a good friend and valued member of the group #RIPEatYourMeter. In that same week, I resigned from my position as president-elect of the IDF YLD programme.
