Riva Greenberg


I have written three diabetes books and speak at conferences. I am a diabetes advocate and my work largely concentrates around helping PWDs understand it is impossible to “control” their blood sugar and diabetes; they are responsible for their efforts, not the outcome. My work also centers around improving the HCP/PWD relationship. I often speak to audiences about “historical gratitude.” I appreciate so very much the strides we’ve made on my 50 year journey. A CGM is like a lifeline and the DOC a community for all. While I wouldn’t wish to get T1D, this is a most generous and loving community which makes me feel blessed.
