When I found CDN as an undergraduate student, I was still a Chemistry Pre-Med student at Ohio University. By that time, I had been involved in the diabetes space in my local community, but I hadn’t really found my voice yet. As we had our introductory call with Jo, the CDN Program director at the time, I had not even the slightest inkling that my first job after college would be at CDN. Now, after a year and a half on the team, I have to say goodbye as I head back to school for nursing. Before… Read more

A few months ago I was speaking at a presentation  and was introduced as “Emily Ike, recently diagnosed with type 3 diabetes.” I laughed at this, but can remember that not too long ago I could have made the same mistake.
