Chat with Clare Rosenfeld About CWD's International Diabetes Youth Ambassador

photo About Clare Rosenfeld
Clare Rosenfeld, now 16 years old, is CWD's International Diabetes Youth Ambassador and the Former National Youth Advocate for the American Diabetes Association (2000-01). She lives in Oregon with her parents and sister. Since her diagnosis with Type 1 diabetes at age seven, Clare has given countless speeches, organized and participated in hundreds of American Diabetes Association events and fundraisers, and raised tens of thousands of dollars for diabetes cure research. Clare also helps fight discrimination; at age 12 she became the youngest certified SCUBA diver with diabetes.

Clare traveled (80,000 miles) to diabetes camps throughout the country during her year as ADA's Youth Advocate, inspiring over 1,800 kids to get involved. Although science is Clare's favorite subject, she's interested in politics as well. She has met with many elected officials, lobbied congress for increased diabetes research funding, testified before the Food & Drug Administration, and developed a grass roots effort to successfully pass insurance reform in Oregon to assure people with diabetes would have needed diabetes supplies and education.

"Young people have a tremendous amount of power", says Clare. "I believe that one person can make a difference and together we can change the world. My hope is that all young people with diabetes work together, because together we will find a cure for diabetes!"

There are many organizations you can contact to volunteer or to raise awareness about diabetes.

Jay from 151.199.241.49
Hi Allison. My name is Jay Lobley and I am good friends with Clare Rosenfeld. I got to see her last week when she was in Philadelphia. I've been a Diabetic since the age of 2. She asked me to come tonight.

Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
Hi everyone! Thanks for joining us! To start this chat I'd like to introduce, to those who may not know, what the International Diabetes Youth Ambassador program is about. We are a group who are working together to learn about diabetes around the world. There are a lot of things we can do as a group such as learn how to end discrimination for people with diabetes and make positive change in the lives of people with diabetes around the world. We brainstormed these ideas at a youth advocacy session at the CWD conference in Pasadena. One thing we can do tonight is share what you have done in your own communities to raise diabetes awareness and also what you might like to do in the future.

AngleEyez, that is so cool! When do you think you will complete the CDE program? How old are you?

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:09:28 Eastern US
Colleen C. (Moderator) from 148.177.1.213
AngelEyez -- Love to see that you want to be a CDE! We need more diabetes educators.

Congratulations Heather, for becoming an International Diabetes Youth Ambassador!

We will soon introduce you on the "Meet Us" section of the International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) web page, so kids and teens around the world will be able to "meet" you and learn about diabetes in your area.

OK Allison, fire away. I know you have done a lot of things. Why should we educate those kids in our school?

Allison (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 17) from 205.188.197.42
Um, are you asking me "what should we do?" or "why should we do it?"

AngelEyez (Future CDE...I hope) from 65.145.29.177
Well, right now I am 17. But after highschool, I plan on going to college to become a CDE,Endo, or Ped.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:11:58 Eastern US
Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
Both, you are an awsome advocate, tell us what you have been up to.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:11:59 Eastern US
Heather (dx'd @ 5 (also LOVES HarryPotter actor)) from 216.221.107.204
I had to make a speech in English about something I told them about diabetes! It was a class of about 23!

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:12:32 Eastern US
Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
AngleEyez, how long have you had diabetes?

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:12:52 Eastern US
AngelEyez (Future CDE...I hope) from 65.145.29.177
But I feel that not enough people out there know about diabetes. I mean you have people out there that want to cure cancer and aids. But how many people do you actually see or hear saying they want to cure diabetes? I've had it for 16 years, and if I can help find a cure then vile means I'll do all and the best I can to help

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:12:59 Eastern US
Heather (dx'd @ 5 (also LOVES HarryPotter actor)) from 216.221.107.204
AngelEyez, where do you plan to go to college?

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:13:00 Eastern US
Allison (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 17) from 205.188.197.42
thank you. I generally give talks in health/science. a lot of kids like them because 1) they aren't doing any actual work and 2) they learn more about diabetes and about their bodies too (we all have pancreases).

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:13:25 Eastern US
Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
Heather, that's great. Did you get a lot of questions like, "is diabetes contageous?" I always get a lot like that! It really shows me how much we need to educate people.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:14:17 Eastern US
Allison (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 17) from 205.188.197.42
Nowadays I do more one-on-one talks, with students in my school if they ask me about my meter or my pump, and even people on the streets when they stare at my pump. It opens up a lot of lines of communication and hopefully they'll learn something and remember "diabetes" the next time they hear it on the news.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:14:36 Eastern US
Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
I agree AngleEyez, not enough people understand diabetes. There is a lot of discrimination out there.

Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
Have any of you read the new portions on the Diabetes In The World section of the web page. There are some amazing stories being shared. One girl had to move to Brazil to get a pump. China and India have loads of problems too.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:15:40 Eastern US
Heather (dx'd @ 5 (also LOVES HarryPotter actor)) from 216.221.107.204
Clare, I've had diabetes for the past 8 1/2yrs my mother also diabetic type1 since 15months. We are both in on telling people about it if they dont know we give them the 4-1-1 on diabetes. Oh Clare I have put my name on the list to have one of the diabetic bears sent to my house! I hope it come during the school year so I can tell the kids abouty diabetes how it can be fun!

Allison (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 17) from 205.188.197.42
I've read them, Clare. You want to hear an idea? (I know you have a ton, and this is probably a repeat...)

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:16:21 Eastern US
AngelEyez (Future CDE...I hope) from 65.145.29.177
No matter where I go, someone always asks what's that on your hip? Can I see your beeper or cell phone. You'd be shocked that some people you meet are actually diabetic themselves or know someone who has it. In school, my nurses didn't know anything about it. All they knew was if you were low, your needed sugar.

AngelEyez, Yeah but you know why they ask! Its because they really don't know.

Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
One thing we would like to post on the web page is information that you can use when you are talking to kids and staff at school. CWD has a lot already up you can use!

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:19:06 Eastern US
Clare Rosenfeld (International Diabetes Youth Ambassador (IDYA) Age 16) from 67.250.153.51
Hi Courtney, for years we didn't have a nurse either.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:19:32 Eastern US
AngelEyez (Future CDE...I hope) from 65.145.29.177
Also I knew a newbie diabetic who would never bolus(she was on the pump) and eat all the sugar she wanted. If she was high, she's use an insulin pen. Once she used my insulin. She even told me how to carb count. I remember she was 900 one day and nobody did a damn thing about it.

Jay from 151.199.241.49
I agree with everyone about nurses needing the proper education about Diabetes. I'm 30 now and I had a scary experience on the last day of school in 8th grade. It was one of the hottest days and I went into shock. The nurse thought my mother didn't give me enough insulin. I missed break period to finish an exam.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:21:43 Eastern US
AngelEyez (Future CDE...I hope) from 65.145.29.177
I agree whole heartly. CWD is an awsome program. I know Jeff and he's a great guy:-) It gives people an outlet, some people to communicate with so they don't feel scared or left alone. They have someone to vent on

Short and long term goals would be. Short, to introduce each other to our countries and how diabetes is handled there. We would like to recruit more people. Share advocacy ideas. Regular articles on dealing with diabetes will be posted, you will share YOUR ideas on how we can improve advocacy efforts. Teach each other how to write advocacy letters, give speeches, contact government officials and the media. Act as support for those who are doing work around the world..

If someone were to write in with a problem in their area, (school, media, gov.) and I were to post that, it would be really cool if everyone could take that as a call to action and write in and share what you would do in that situation. Also, write to school officials, etc. and say that you support that person. What do you guys think?

Billetdeaux (Sam's mom) from 67.25.222.11
Hi Jay :)
I'm Sam's mom - we met at AADE - and I just want to put in my 2 cents that I see my role as a parent and as an IDYA as one of hooking up other teens to this program, especially teens from other countries who might not have the means, freedom, or resources to speak up for themselves at the moment. This can be an incredible resource to kids, teens, and adults all over the world! I also see it as a way to help the teens I know problem-solve with each other and come up with pro-active ideas for dealing with situations that might arise.

Wed Aug 14 2002 21:38:01 Eastern US
Jay from 151.199.241.49

I think some o fthem exist in hospitals or local ADA or JDRF chapters. CWD offers the best support I know of! One thing we can do on our page is have a posting of messages to newly diagnosed kids. We could all send in words of support and advice...not medical of course!

Clare, have you thought about starting a IDYA mailing list. We had one for JDRF's Children's Congress and it was great b/c we shared information and stories, etc., and it was faster than having to wait for it to post on the webpage.

Billetdeaux (Sam's mom) from 67.25.222.11
Clare, I like your idea about looking up something from another country by the next chat. How about taking that one step further... everyone find a buddy from another country, sign that person up on IDYA, and you BOTH show up for the next chat. Time zones might be interesting...
