What is the Diabetes Empowerment Summit?

This is our fourth annual online interview series event, and the positive feedback we received from our 9+ thousand attendees over the past three years has been mind-blowing.

This year’s event begins on August 5th, so don’t wait to register and share! Registration takes less than ten seconds!

This online interview series event showcases some of the highest caliber speakers WITHOUT having to pay for conference fees, travel costs, taking time off work, etc. AND getting to pick and choose which presentations are most appealing to you and watching them from the comfort of your own home.

All the presenters share their best tools, stories, practices, experiences and more on HOW they cultivate and create an empowered mindset with all types of diabetes, HOW they build confidence in their day to day choices living with diabetes, and also what they teach their patients/clients/readers/followers!

Why are we so passionate about this?

Because diabetes management is 80% mental and 20% medical…

However, the reality of traditional healthcare when it comes to living with all types of diabetes is that the mental and emotional sides of life with chronic disease are almost NEVER addressed, even though without deeply understanding those aspects of our self-care, we are left feeling unequipped to handle the demands of day to day life with chronic disease and end up feeling alone and overwhelmed.

Without these CRUCIAL tools, we are left to figure this all out on our own.

I know because that was my journey with diabetes for so many years. Clinical depression, eating disorder, obesity, shame, guilt, anger, hopelessness, self-pity. That was my everyday experience and mindset for more than ten years.

That is why my team and I are so passionate about creating this resource that is free for everyone to experience.

Because it is a tool that I wish I had when I was struggling, and I want to help bridge the gap between traditional healthcare and the emotional tools we all need but are not given at the doctor’s office.

***We need your help!***

We are SO grateful to partner with many non-profit organizations and industry partners who are sharing this resource with their networks and communities because they believe in the value it adds to the community.

We believe that the power of collaboration and community are key to helping as many people as possible get the tools they need to live happier and healthier lives through cultivating the practices of self-love, self-care and self-worth.

In that light, we are asking that you share this valuable resource with your network – your communities, friends, family, healthcare teams, social media groups, and anyone who could use this information.

What is Self-care? Perspective Matters!

How are you intentionally practicing self-love via self-care today?🤔 Let me know in the comments! Sometimes we get caught up in an all-or-nothing mindset when it comes to self-care practices.
