Two Book Events
I'm thrilled to announce a few new book events to support Balancing Pregnancy With Pre-Existing Diabetes: Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby. I would love to meet you if you're a book fan or a blog reader.
First up is at Isis Parenting in Brookline, MA on Wednesday, June 23 at 7 pm. I'll be speaking on a panel about diabetes and pregnancy that includes the directors of the diabetes and pregnancy program at Boston's Joslin Diabetes Center/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Florence Brown and Tamara Takoudes, as well as an exercise and diabetes expert from Joslin, Jacqueline Shahar. Isis is a terrific resource for expecting and new parents, and I'm a giant fan of the Joslin/BIDMC pregnancy program. (Drs. Brown and Takoudes co-wrote my book's forward, reviewed every word of it for medical accuracy, delivered my son, and are all-around awesome. And Ms. Shahar is an excellent exercise resource who also contributed great pearls of wisdom for my book.)
Isis is asking for people to register for this FREE event here either by calling 781-429-1500 or by going online (look for the June 23 event).
I'll also be speaking solo about the book at the Framingham MA Barnes & Noble on Wednesday, July 14 at 7pm. I'll give more details as things get closer to the date, but mark your calendar now!
And stay tuned for some new blog posts early next week--it's been too quiet around here for too long!
