World Diabetes Day 2014

Happy World Diabetes Day, camp family! We hope you’re wearing your blue today and spreading the word about your daily life with diabetes!

This week Colleen and Skippy had the chance to attend a World Diabetes Day event at the Pennsylvania State Capitol. Here are a few pictures:

We got to meet former Pittsburgh Steelers Guard Kendall Simmons, who showed off his Medtronic insulin pump and talked about what it was like being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes while playing professional football.

We also saw a lot of familiar faces and friends from the local diabetes community. We chatted about ways to improve the lives of people with diabetes in Harrisburg and Pennsylvania in general. We also made some new friends!

We hope everyone is having a lovely day and has some time to celebrate! What are you doing for World Diabetes Day?
