We are sending strength and support to the diabetes community during this challenging time. diaTribe will continue to publish our weekly newsletter, to provide the most up-to-date information to people with diabetes

Dear diaTribe community,

We are holding the diabetes community in our hearts during this unprecedented and uncertain time. Although our office is closed in San Francisco, we continue to work each day to support our communities. We remain committed to our mission of improving the lives of people with diabetes and prediabetes and advocating for action. This mission has always been of critical importance, and is even more urgent today as our community manages its diabetes amid the COVID-19 crisis. You can find all of our COVID-19 resources here.

As the pandemic continues to unfold we will continue to publish our weekly newsletter to ensure that everyone has the information they need to stay healthy. Translating the latest science and research, sharing ideas and recipes from our writers, and keeping our readers up to date on the most up-to-date news is what we do best.  

We are also monitoring our social platforms to respond to questions and concerns as quickly as possible. We know that our digital resources – and our ongoing commitment to helping people with diabetes become happier, healthier, and more hopeful – are more important than ever. As always, please reach out to us with your questions, concerns, and feedback.

There is no doubt that the months ahead will be challenging. As a small but dedicated nonprofit, we are doing everything we can to weather this storm and emerge as a community even stronger than before. We hope we can continue to count on your incredible generosity and support.

Thank you for being a part of our community. As we are learning each day from this crisis, we are stronger together.

Very best,

Kelly Close, founder

Jim Carroll, COO

Caroline Pappajohn, CSO
