Candoc Bids farewell to Monday chats

Hi all,

It’s with a somewhat heavy, but otherwise optimistic heart that I am writing to let you know that the three Moderators: Alanna, Terri and Sara have decided to conclude our adventure in tweetchats. With the upcoming changes to the tweetchat platform, the uncertainty of having a new platform and the lack of participation in our chats we have decided to nix them from our regular schedule.

Should we find an acceptable chat host, we will be hosting several special chats over the coming months with guests who will be answering your questions about the topic at hand.

Over the next few months we will be posting more blog posts, and updating twitter more regularly with Canadian centric information about all things diabetes.

In the meantime, we highly encourage you to attend #DSMA chats on Wednesday nights from 9-10pm EST.

We proudly stand behind DCAF and are happy to be their unofficial Canadian partners. Check out the DCAF website, and make a donation if you can.

Another great organization that we support fully is Connected In Motion. They support people living with diabetes through fostering a great community through outdoor education. Visit that site and make a donation as well.

If you have any questions you can always find us on twitter, comment here or check in with our moderation team: @terrileigh , @NitaCure4T1D and @alannaswartz

Thanks for the support you have shown us.



CANDOC chat May 6


This Monday’s #candoc tweetchat theme will be about Adventuring with Diabetes


1. Do you consider yourself or your loved one with D an adventurer?

2. What do you consider to be the biggest challenge when adventuring with D?

3. What are your tips for adventuring with diabetes?

4. What's your favorite summer/adventurous activity?

5. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what non-D related items would you bring?

Last but not least: #bgbingo – Just cause we can!
