#MasterLab 2015 – Kim Vlasnik


Kim Vlasnik is a diabetes rockstar. She is adored in the patient community for her humor, her strength, and her genuine voice. She is known for her widely-read blog Texting My Pancreas, for her clever cartoon artwork, and, since 2011, for the You Can Do This Project – a movement born from an idea that people with diabetes could benefit from the encouragement of our peers. In 2012 and 2014, Kim was selected as an ePatient Scholar at Stanford’s Medicine X Conference. Her powerful 2014 ePatient ignite! Talk at MedX has garnered over 6,000 views on YouTube and is one of the most candid and moving talks on diabetes available on video.

#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
