Kim Vlasnik, you NAILED it!

In this video, Kim Vlasnik takes our breath away as she describes what its like to be a person with diabetes. Fortunately, Stanford’s Medicine-X Conference gives ePatients, like Kim, a chance to speak since we carry the most important voice. As people who experience this condition 24 hours a day and seven days a week, we are able to share diabetes stigma that medical professionals tend to overlook. At Medicine-X, Kim was our leader, our voice and even our hero. Please grab a low carb snack, watch the video and take a look at her amazing blog; Texting My Pancreas. You ROCK Kim V!
