BOOM: I am home from MasterLab and FFL. That was a lot of information! This week I will read all of my notes and organize the specific and best things I learned, like: don’t wear cologne on the radio and a story differs from an assertion in that it happens when the reader connects the dots.
At MasterLab, there was an emphasis on everyone with diabetes (Type 1 & Type 2) seamlessly working together to create change for the benefit of all.
