Diabetes Update: Financial Aid

Number 33; March 18, 2002

By David Mendosa


This newsletter keeps you up-to-date with new articles, columns, and Web pages that I have written. I list and link most of these on my Diabetes Directory at www.mendosa.com/diabetes.htm

From time to time Diabetes Update may also include links to other Web pages of special interest.

My most recent contribution is:

  • The Varieties of Diabetes News
    How can you possibly keep up-to-date with all that is going on in diabetes? Besides reading this newsletter, of course. Well, there are a few other sources of the news and they come packaged in different varieties. I review them for my "About the Internet" column for the American Diabetes Association's Web site. This happens to be the 100th column that I have written for the ADA site. The URL is

  • Dominating Diabetes—People Who Are Finding the Way
    I have been writing a series of articles for the DiabetesWATCH Web site about people who have succeeded in keeping their blood glucose levels low. How low is low? For the purpose of these articles I have defined it as a hemoglobin A1c test of 6.0% or lower.

    For legal and technical reasons, the site has only published one article to date, http://www.mendosa.com/hocking.htm. Because of the long delays in getting these articles published, the site authorized me to make two of these articles available on my Web site a month ago. Now, they say I can make three more articles available on my Web site:

    1. Gretchen Becker is a medical editor and writer who raises sheep in Vermont. She keeps her blood glucose levels low on a "lowish carb" diet. The URL is
      http://www.mendosa.com/gretchen.htm

    2. Teri Robert is a Web designer and medical journalist who uses the Exchange Lists to keep her blood glucose level low. The URL is
      http://www.mendosa.com/teri.htm

    3. Ron Sebol is a retired electronic engineer who applies engineering strategy to the problem of blood glucose control. The URL is
      http://www.mendosa.com/sebol.htm

Financial Aid
One of the questions posed to me the most often concerns financial aid. Now I have pulled together links to the best answers that I know about financial aid plus health insurance and scholarships. It's a separate section at the end of On-line Diabetes Resources, Part 2: General Web Sites at http://www.mendosa.com/genl.htm
