#MasterLab 2015 – Emily Coles


For the last four years Emily Coles has served Diabetes Hands Foundation as our program manager, and now as Head of Communities, leading the day-to-day operations of our two online communities TuDiabetes.org and EsTuDiabetes.org. Emily is known in our community for her warmth, honesty and grace as well as her talent as a professional ballroom dancer and dance instructor.

Emily was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 3 and has a background in public health and holds degrees in Biology and Epidemiology. She is committed to outreach and actively fundraises for causes related to AIDS, women’s health, and diabetes, having recently ridden her bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles in the AIDS Lifecycle ride to raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS.

#MasterLab is a day of advocacy held in conjunction with CWD’s Friend For Life conference in Orlando, Florida every summer. If you’re interested in joining us next summer visit: http://www.diabetesadvocates.org/MasterLab
