Community


Member Shout Out The Member Shout Out category provides the opportunity to praise any member you’d like to publicly high-five. Is there someone who has been particularly helpful, informative or supportive? Maybe there’s someone recognizing a certain milestone. Here’s the place to do it! Arts and Poetry The TuDiabetes community is full of artists of all kinds! Use the Arts and Crafts sub-category to share your original drawings, poetry, diabetes supply collages, photography and music with your fellow community members. Events Share Your Stories The Share Your Stories sub-category is a place to do just that: tell us about yourself! Share experiences, thoughts and feelings you have about diabetes, observations about the world, funny (or not-so-funny) diabetes-related interactions you have had... Recalls This category will serve as the repository for recall announcements, from food, meds, devices, everything and anything that can affect us. Polls The polls sub-category is created with the idea to get to know us better. We will not use this information for commercial purposes; we want to serve our members better and learning about each other is the best way to do it. Fun and Games Fun and Games with diabetes? Why not!! We have plenty of "inside jokes", and we all love the Word Association Game! This is the place to enjoy them Welcome New Members Messaging new members with a Welcome message was a tradition started when TuDiabetes was created. This tradition was lost to us when we migrated to the Discourse platform. We wish to re-establish that tradition.
