Living with diabetes can be very frustrating at times. Low and high blood sugars can get in the way of everything from taking a test at school to having sex. Understanding what the underlying causes of these frustrations are, can help reduce or possibly even prevent Diabetes Burnout. While the actual events you're frustrated about are part of the equation, how we think about our diabetes plays a much larger role. During this seminar, we are going to go over the causes and symptoms of Diabetes Burnout. We are going to look at contributing factors of diabetes burnout: Perception of diabetes, Value placed on Diabetes Self-Management, Perspective on Blood Glucose. Self-Care behaviors that can be used to reduce burnout will be discussed as well. There will be a short question and answer period as well. I look forward to helping you reduce diabetes burnout. See you there!
Register for this session, led by expert Katie Stearns to explore a proven framework for leading, developing, managing and supporting large-scale days of service efforts.
Get practical, real-life examples of how nonprofits are dynamically engaging volunteers in new ways through a new report called, Volunteer Engagement Stars. Through hard-hitting case studies, this webinar, led by Reed Dewey, will highlight the report, providing the business case for engaging volunteers across the entire organization. Glen O'Gilvie, CEO of the Center for Nonprofit Advancement says, "The report provides further evidence on how donors, volunteers, clients and our ambassadors are increasingly interchangeable. CEOs in this report tend to look at those who care about our work as stakeholders first, then as volunteers, board members and donors. Learn more about what's working in volunteer engagement and share your own lessons learned with peers. Reed Dewey is the principal of Volunteer Frontier, a consultancy helping nonprofits and government strategically engage volunteers for maximum impact. Reed served as Director of the Montgomery County Volunteer Center in Maryland until 2010. Prior to this post, Reed worked at the Points of Light Foundation and Volunteer Center National Network for many years where he provided technical assistance to volunteer centers, corporate volunteer Councils and Fortune 500 companies on volunteer engagement strategies.

For many people with diabetes, blood sugar takes a silent toll on cognition, memory, retention, and recall. It can diminish learning, raise stress levels, and spur additional maladies such as depression. It impacts all aspects of life, lifestyle and turns your life upside down. For the people close to them, it has an impact as well: they often must learn to cope with feelings of guilt, anger, being helpless, and worried about this complex health issues. My private practice helps clients of all ages and their families manage life with diabetes.
