“Open Up Your Bag” is a new children’s picture book about diabetes. The story behind it takes us into a great conversation with the author Mike Lawson. Mike was diagnosed as a young adult (after initially being misdiagnosed as type 2) and he shares stories about finding the diabetes community, getting involved in organizations like TuDiabetes.Org and Diabetes Hands Foundation and what led him to write the book and start Diabetes Doodles

Plus, a new resource for our community is now available in audio form. Listen to a bit of Bright Spots and Landmines, a diabetes guide by DiaTribe’s Adam Brown

Use this link to get one free download and one free month of Audible, available to Diabetes Connections listeners! You can get Bright Spots and Landmines by using this link.
