CanDoc chat for the week of November 12, 2012

The chat this week has been re-scheduled for Wednesday, November 14, for a very special reason. Wednesday is World Diabetes Day!! *insert happy dance music here*

The CanDoc have teamed up with Diabetes Social Media Advocacy (#DSMA) and many other people world-wide to join the twitter chat on Wednesday, November 14, 2012. For the updated list in case ours has not been updated, click here.

There are a mired of very interesting topics and I am so happy that Cherise came up with this idea. She is amazing!
