Caring for diabetes – getting connected
Caring for diabetes (whether you have it, or someone close to you does) can be a real challenge. In fact, we’re pretty sure there are times when you feel there’s a gap in what’s available to you in the way of resources.
It’s one of the goals of the Chris Dudley Foundation to help fill that gap by making easy-to-understand, usable information and other resources freely (emphasis on free) available to you.
We begin the effort by offering you the resources described below. The list will grow quickly, so check back often to see what’s new. Right now, you can find the following information and tools that we hope will be useful to you in caring for diabetes. There is no cost associated with any of it.

Playing Thru: free monthly e-Newsletter
Playing Thru is a monthly electronic newsletter (or e-Zine) about living an active life with diabetes. It’s written by Chris Dudley (who is also, by the way, the founder of the Chris Dudley Foundation), a 16-year veteran of the NBA. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 16, so he has quite a bit of first-hand experience with rigorous sports and diabetes management. He will also be interviewing other athletes, celebrities and personalities who have the disease or are close to someone who has it. The newsletter will address topics about all aspects of caring for diabetes, including the frustrations of living with diabetes, general health topics, diabetes-related products, research, and a host of other issues that we hope will help you. The newsletter is absolutely without charge or obligation, so sign up for it now!

Diabetes education library
The library contains articles about diabetes that you can read online, or download and print. They are short and straightforward, and yes, easy to understand. If you feel you want to delve more deeply into a particular topic, the articles also provide links to other resources. We think that, if you’re caring for diabetes (your own, or someone else’s) you’ll find these articles helpful in understanding the nature of diabetes in general, and type 1 diabetes in particular. Open the library.
