It's an hour of excellent diabetes education available free either on the Internet or by phone. You can click to register at no cost here: www.askdrbernstein.com and you can ask a question or not as you choose.
The webcast is available for ten days at www.askdrbernstein.com, and then it is moved over to www.thebernsteinconnection.com, where a membership fee provides access all of his videos, webcasts, and transcripts.

Searching for My Articles
Whenever you want to find anything that I have written about diabetes -- whether on my website or on HealthCentral Network -- the easiest way is to use the search tool on my site. You can search for all of the articles on my site or for the "Diabetes Developments" blog or the "Fitness and Photography for Fun" blog or what I have written at HealthCentral, which is now a part of Remedy Health Media.
Just go to mendosa.com/search and check which one of the four sites you want to search and enter what you want to find in the search block.
The Health Central Network will now notify you by email of new articles (SharePosts) by me or anyone who posts at HealthCentral.com. Just click on "Subscribe" at the top of each of my articles or on my "Profile" page.
Each month I describe and link my new Health Central articles here. But you can also use a blog reader to keep up with my articles more quickly. I use Bloglines, as I describe in my article, “Reading Health Blogs.”This Newsletter:
- Is and will remain free.
- Will never include advertising (except targeted Google ads at the bottom of the web page and not in the email newsletter).
- Nor will I ever sell, rent, or trade your email address to anyone.
- I will link sources of information.
- I will disclose any conflict of interest.
- If and when I learn of any errors of fact, I will correct them.
Archives: I now send out Diabetes Update once a month. Previous issues are online at Older Issues.
