I was surprised to already see my name typed up on the schedule for an event happening at the Best Western in Brantford on May 2nd. Lorraine told me that there should be almost 500 people there and that the majority of people would be type 2's. Although I don't write too much about type 2 diabetes - since I am type 1, I am still just as willing and eager to speak to this group. Although there are so many bad contentions with type 2 diabetes - they are still regular people and some are in fact our grandma's and grandpa's or uncles and aunts. Everyone deserves to be educated about diabetes no matter what type they are because either way it can lead us down a terrible path or a positive one.
Another event I might be speaking at is a Golf Tournament for raising money for Camp Huronda. This would be a younger crowd - except for the actual golfers, but Lorraine said it also is important for them to know about the people they are raising money for! Education and awareness is key!
I am looking forward to these speaking engagements and can hardly wait! Hopefully this will lead to bigger and better things for my future! I cannot wait to share them!
On another note, I want to start introducing video blogs to my blog site. They won't be a frequent, but I do think it's another way to get the word out there, just in a different form! I hope they are enjoyable!
