The American Diabetes Association® has created Living with Diabetes: Ask the Experts, a free, online educational Town Hall series focused on diabetes management. The series provides information and tips for living well with diabetes, including taking medication, eating healthy, planning meals, monitoring blood glucose, getting active, coping with common feelings about the disease, managing stress, and getting support. Focused on a specific topic, each session features streaming video and a live 45-minute Q&A with Association diabetes experts. The series kicked off on June 28 and runs monthly through February 2018. Register for individual Town Hall sessions at or text EXPERTS to 828282 to sign up for the series.

Planning Meals: Having diabetes doesn’t mean you can’t ever eat your favorite foods. The key is a combination of what, how much, and when to eat.
