On Sat May 14… 258 people gathered at the fabulous Chase Park Plaza Ballroom in St. Louis to be part of So What Can I Eat?, a community diabetes education program presented by the St. Louis Diabetes Coalition. Joan McGinnis, MSN, CDE introduced featured speaker Pat Speirs, RD, CDE of Loyola University Chicago, who delivered an practical and inspirational presentation that focused on carb counting. She and Dr. Eric Armbrecht, PhD fielded excellent questions from attentive and engaged participants who had come from all over the region. This outstanding event was made possible by the generous support of Roche Accu-CHEK, Novo Nordisk and promotional assistance of many partners, including Personal Care Products, Liberty Medical, Visiting Nurses Association, Washington University Diabetes Center, Saint Louis University, SLUCare, JDRF, American Diabetes Association. Questions and comments by the participants re-affirmed a belief that the #1 question of people with diabetes still is: So What Can I Eat?. Participants were invited to join the Coalition’s newest program to provide diabetes self-management support — KICK Diabetes. Thank you to the team of 8 volunteers who helped check-in all of the participants. What a great day!!!!
