If you are diagnosed with a chronic disease, your doctor can give you the facts, but where can you go for emotional and practical support? Dr. Steve Edelman welcomes Manny Hernendez and David Edelman to discuss their personal experiences. Manny, an electrical engineer, started TuDiabetes, a social network that offers support, education, and sharing the steps taken every day to stay healthy while living with this very serious condition. David started Diabetes Daily after experiencing a lack of local support resources for his wife. He created an online community that connects people with diabetes, facilitates education and promotes advocacy. (#23969)
