Message from the Chairman for April 11, 1999

I have been asked, and accepted, to be the Master of Ceremonies at a special event in Washington D.C. honoring Newt and Marianne Gingrich for their continuing help and commitment to diabetes research. This is particularly gratifying for me because I have met Mr. Gingrich previously at an American Diabetes Association function and was deeply moved by Mr. Gingrich's vision and commitment in recognizing the communication revolution for the next millennium.

If we can harness the power of the Internet, this tremendous communication tool, new possibilities will open up in finding a cure for diabetes. Imagine a website where diabetes researchers can talk to each other 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, sharing failures and successes. Imagine a website where databases between research and treatment centers become compatible and collaboration routine in the progress toward finding and testing a cure for diabetes. is not only an online community for kids, families and adults with diabetes, but it is also a leader in using the Internet to "unite the world to cure diabetes."

I look forward to your help in helping move forward until we defeat the beast of diabetes that affects so many of our children.

John Ratzenberger
