We are proud to have powerhouse advocate Cherise Shockley as part of our 2019 Orlando faculty. She’ll be joining a panel of diabetes online community leaders to talk about peer support and how the Internet can make a difference in your diabetes care.
Cherise was diagnosed with LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in adults) June 2004. She is the founder of Diabetes Social Media Advocacy (#dsma), creator of the Blue Fridays initiative and WOCDiabetes (Women of Color living with Diabetes). Cherise is a subject matter expert in diabetes social media, online communities, and peer support. She is a wife, mother, and veteran.
