Dear DECA Friends,
Summertime is upon us and diabetes camping 2012 has begun! Thank you DECA friends for your countless hours of planning and preparation. I know that your campers will learn much about living well with diabetes this summer, while developing lifelong friendships and enjoying the camp experience.
HOT TOPICS NEED FOR FORUM DISCUSSIONSAs a long-time director of diabetes camps, I realize that we sometimes have “challenges” come up with the operation of our programs. I often found it helpful to reach out to others to ask for information about how problems or difficult situations could be handled.Do you have a Hot Topic that you would like to discuss with other diabetes camping specialists? Would you be willing to participate in a forum discussion to share your insight and experience? We would like to hear about the Hot Topics that are on your mind. Please let us know by sending a note to: email@example.com.DECA Camps Eligible for FREE ACA Membership - Join Now!!!

diaTribe is excited to work with DECA to spread the best information, research, and news about diabetes.
diaTribe was founded in 2006 and provides the most up-to-date and cutting-edge research and product news for people with diabetes and their loved ones. Anyone interested can sign up for free at www.diaTribe.us. Among other content, diaTribe includes recent diabetes and obesity news, test drives on new products, conference recaps, and columns from New York Times bestselling author James Hirsch, renowned educator Gary Scheiner, and well-known diabetes blogger Kerri Sparling. diaTribe's mission is to write and publish the best information about diabetes and obesity to help readers live long and healthy lives. The newsletter goes out monthly and is completely independent (no advertising, subscription fees, or industry support). Last summer, diaTribe also published a free e-book called Targeting a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes: How Long Will We Have to Wait. The book summarizes the recent developments toward curing type 1 diabetes, which is available as a free download at www.diaTribe.us/cure.
The information in diaTribe would be a valuable educational resource for campers, families, and staff at diabetes camps. For more information, please visit our website at www.diaTribe.us or contact Adam Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
