Summer 2021 edition highlights

In the summer 2021 edition, we meet member Liz Cromwell. After a personal tragedy and diabetes sent her into despair, she found a way to push through her pain barrier and rebuild her life. 

With the arrival of the warm weather, we look at how to safely take the plunge into open water swimming, and think about how moving more can help you manage your diabetes and improve your mental wellbeing.
