Being nominated by the Western Publisher’s Association and wegohealth.com is a great privilege. I am honored to be in the same category as Yoga Journal and look forward to being at the awards among some very talented creative contemporaries. The nomination in itself is a prestigious award and I thank the judges that support Diabetes Health’s patient advocate magazines. By recognizing Diabetes Health, they bring light to a wider audience and support our mission to inform and inspire those living with diabetes.
The WPA is to the magazine industry what the Academy Awards are to the film industry. With that being said, the Western Publisher’s Association has nominated Diabetes Health for 5 awards. In addition, I am a finalist with wegohealth.com for a Lifetime achievement award.
The Rewards of Diabetes Health
If you or anyone you know has diabetes, you will benefit from knowing about DiabetesHealth.com. Not only was our magazine nominated, we were also nominated for the Best Digital Edition as well as the Best Video Channel. Diabetes Health serves the diabetes population in every available format.
My passion for helping those with diabetes was awakened at an early age. My immediate family and the family I married into both have lost several members to diabetes and we have several members living with type 1 and type 2-diabetes today.
Diabeteshealth.com is the go-to resource for everything related to diabetes. There is always something for everyone either interested in or living with a new or ongoing diagnosis of diabetes. For instance, I recently re-introduced my “Ask Nadia” column for those who have questions about the social aspects of living with diabetes. I personally answer questions and am accessible to patients living with this disease.
We feature articles written by those who live with type 1 and type 2 diabetes as well as crosswords puzzles that give you an opportunity to test your knowledge about diabetes. In addition we offer business briefs, research reports, product evaluations and write-ups and we haven’t lost our sense of humor either. We feature diabetes cartoons. Visitors are always invited to submit guest posts via email to [email protected]. And we offer a free, twice weekly e-newsletter.
