AMA (Ask Me Anything)

Friends: it’s diabetes burnout season. It seems many of us are struggling at the moment. That’s why we’ve decided to hold a special AMA (Ask Me Anything) – all about diabetes burnout.

We’ve got LibreCoach diabetes coach Kate Bristow here to give us her professional advice, and we’ll be asking – and answering – all your questions.

We know that living with diabetes can be tough, which is why we want to offer this safe space to talk about anything you need to. Everyone is welcome.

Big thanks to Abbott FreeStyle Libre for sponsoring this AMA.

Please join us on Thursday 8th September at 7pm for our AMA all about diabetes burnout.

What to expect from our AMA about diabetes burnout

We’re going to spend a whole hour chatting about all things Type 1 diabetes and burnout. Mental health, diabetes distress, methods for coping and tips for moving through diabetes burnout. We’ve got experienced diabetes nurse educator and LibreCoach diabetes coach Kate Bristow to help us answer your questions, and we look forward to unpacking this important issue.

Bring your questions on the day – you can literally Ask Me (and Kate!) Anything.

The panel includes:
