Diabetes voices: one condition, three perspectives

Earlier in 2013, Diabetes Voice initiated a regular column featuring a variety of people in different parts of the world expressing their thoughts about living with diabetes. In consideration of the DAWN2TM study, we have broadened the circle to also include the perspective of a family member of a person living with diabetes and a health professional directly involved in diabetes psychological care in Canada and Russia. In China, we hear from David, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2003, and his wife about life in a region defined by ambition and expansion against concerns about the diabetes epidemic and access to healthcare.
