Here We Go
Here at our offices in Fairfax, California, there has been this blank canvas. And to this canvas, our design, editorial, sales and circulation staff have been adding radiant colors and dynamic shapes of all kinds.
After several months, we have now painted our masterpiece—the inaugural issue of Diabetes Health!
Too Much to Talk About
There is so much great new stuff in this magazine that I may need the entire magazine to tell you about it all.
For starters, what do you think of our new cover, the new design and all of our new sections? I’m most excited about our new Food for Thought section. Here we will cover the latest in Food News and Nutrition Research for people with diabetes. Joy Pape’s Lower-Carb Options column can now be found in this section, as well as three delicious recipes in both low-fat and low-carb versions from Sue Spitler, the author of several books for people with diabetes.
After an extensive search, Diabetes Health found its Nutrition Coach—Anne Blocker, RD, CDE. Anne has been helping people with diabetes prepare meals and alter recipes to better suit their control for over 18 years, and we are thrilled to have her be part of our team.
What Else Is New?
Our Living Well section will feature leaders in the diabetes field giving practical advice on living well with type 1 and 2 diabetes. We also have exercise physiologist Ann Swank, PhD, FACSM, as our On the Go editor. Anne will offer practical tips for integrating exercise into your busy schedule.
Rick Mendosa will write our Meter News column in the new Technology Today section.
Let’s Not Forget the Features
Do you remember Nicole Johnson, Miss America 1999? You should, because she has done more to raise diabetes awareness in modern times than probably any other person.
We caught up with Nicole to see what she has been up to.
Dr. Aaron Vinik, MD, discusses the INGAP gene that for years has been heralded as a possible diabetes cure.
Also, we are thrilled to announce that we are venturing into a new arena this month: Fiction!
Evelyn Geisler, RPh, CDE, has written a mystery novel called ‘The Canal Murder,’ whose main character has diabetes. We will serialize the book and hope to keep you on the edge of your seat for months to come.
A New Day
It’s a new day at Diabetes Health. And with each new day, there come new hopes and dreams. I hope that Diabetes Health will help you achieve your hopes and dreams, whatever they may be.
