Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:48:45 PM EDT 2003
Hi Carolyn!

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:48:58 PM EDT 2003
You are so dedicated!!! Hope you don't have anything to do that requires intense concentration tomorrow morning, Martyn!

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:49:19 PM EDT 2003
How late is Sam out until?

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:49:33 PM EDT 2003
Sam is going to be our moderator tonight. He is on his way home from hockey this very moment, and will join us shortly. Carolyn said she'd fill in at 9 if Sam isn't back yet.
Elizabeth, you're taking minutes, right?

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 08:49:53 PM EDT 2003
I sure am!

Moderator   (server) Wed Aug 13 08:50:01 PM EDT 2003
Our IDYA chat starts in 10 min in the 'IDYA' room.

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:50:16 PM EDT 2003
I'd suggest we just 'chat' for a few minutes since the posted time of this meeting is 9:00. Most people will probably join us then. Ok with everyone?

Carolyn IDYA, 15, Sam's Sis  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:51:02 PM EDT 2003
sounds like a plan mom

martyn 15 male scotland  (62.252.128.10) Wed Aug 13 08:51:12 PM EDT 2003
how do all work out who the moderator is gonna be

Jay   (151.199.240.154) Wed Aug 13 08:51:13 PM EDT 2003
Hello everyone.

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:51:15 PM EDT 2003
Sounds good Laura. You know, we might just have to change the officiall times...most people show up early and stay late anyway.  Grin 

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:52:02 PM EDT 2003
Hey Jay! How are you?

Carolyn IDYA, 15, Sam's Sis  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:52:13 PM EDT 2003
haha Clare then we would have to stay for 2 hours b/c people would be showing up 20 minutes for that

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:52:49 PM EDT 2003
Elizabeth...I know you and Lianna volunteered to be moderators in September and October...which month are you again?

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:53:15 PM EDT 2003
Moderators - Basically, last month before the chat, Clare and I had a conversation about encouraging other IDYAs to take over some of the 'jobs' that have to do with running IDYA. Clare put a great structure in place for all of us to use, and now it's everyone's job to move things forward. So, as coordinator of the group (from the adult vantage point), I simply asked 'who would like to moderate?' Sam, Elizabeth, and Lianna volunteered to do the next 3 months. Martyn - would you like to moderate one of the chats that we do more on "Euro time?"

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:53:24 PM EDT 2003
I concede the point Carolyn...you're completely correct. (I know I would)  Cool 

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 08:53:35 PM EDT 2003

I'm fine. I emailed Leslie Wolos and she emailed me back. She told me her room mate moved out so she doesn't have a computer.

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:54:25 PM EDT 2003
Hi Kaitlyn! How are you?

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 08:54:36 PM EDT 2003
HEY Everyone!

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 08:55:13 PM EDT 2003
I'm good Clare- and you?

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 08:55:47 PM EDT 2003
Clare- I am September

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 08:55:47 PM EDT 2003
hi Lianna

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:55:47 PM EDT 2003
Clare, I would like to publicly thank you for your great energy and enthusiasm at AADE in Salt Lake City last week. For those of you who weren't aware, Clare joined Jeff Hitchcock, her mom, and me in staffing the Children with Diabetes booth at the American Association of Diabetes Educators national convention in Salt Lake City. We had a lot of information on the table about IDYA and CWD, and Clare did a great job talking with many hundreds of educators about the IDYA program. It went over really well, and hopefully those people will now get the word out in their diabetes communities. So THANK YOU, Clare... and well done!

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:55:52 PM EDT 2003
Hi Lianna! I saw some great pictures of you in the IDYA scrapbook Carolyn put together.

martyn 15 male scotland VERY TIRED  (62.252.128.10) Wed Aug 13 08:56:32 PM EDT 2003
WELL DONE CLARE

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 08:56:44 PM EDT 2003
Sounds like it went well

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 08:56:51 PM EDT 2003
Good Job

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 08:57:06 PM EDT 2003
So what are we talking about?

Carolyn IDYA, 15, Sam's Sis  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:57:48 PM EDT 2003
Alright everyone... it's about 9:00 so let's try and start the chat. Does anyone have anything important they want to discuss?

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:58:00 PM EDT 2003
Thank you Laura. I agree that AADE was a huge success, and with any luck, we will have many new IDYA joining us when their Diabetes Educators tell them about it. Laura and I also have some other great new to share from the conference...but we should wait a few more minutes for more people to be on, right Laura?

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 08:58:20 PM EDT 2003
The Screen Vision project I can start anytime?? But I will need help with it??

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 08:59:04 PM EDT 2003
Go ahead and explain it so new IDYA will understand Lianna. This is a very cool idea...

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 08:59:05 PM EDT 2003
Yep, hang on a few more minutes with your wonderful news!

Carolyn - can you give a quickie update on t-shirts? And a reminder?

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 08:59:06 PM EDT 2003
I'm am IDYA- but I do not know where to start- any ideas?

Carolyn IDYA, 15, Sam's Sis  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:00:25 PM EDT 2003
Alright Lianna do you want to go first and I'll do the t-shirt reminder when more people are in

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:00:54 PM EDT 2003
Kaitlyn - One of the things that Sam/Carolyn want everyone to chat about tonight are ideas that they have in mind or are just beginning with... to either have you join in with someone else's project or give you an idea to start your own. (I'm not sure what I just said was English... but hopefully you get the point!)

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:01:09 PM EDT 2003
Kaitlyn-
many IDYA choose to work on personal projects, and then share their successes and ideas online. You can either come up with an idea of your own, or you can help out another IDYA who is working on a project.

Michelle 12, IDYA  (152.163.252.2) Wed Aug 13 09:01:41 PM EDT 2003
hi everyone

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:01:58 PM EDT 2003
Hi Michelle! Welcome! Smile 

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:02:03 PM EDT 2003
Alright our screen vision project idea was created at our Orlando Confrence. Someone suggested that we use a screenvision to get us, IDYa out to the public. Screen Vision is those slides that happen before the movie at the theatres. So that is our project idea byt I talked to the woman that will help us and our first thing we need to do is decide whether we do it in one state or, in contrywide??

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:02:08 PM EDT 2003
For the record (Elizabeth!!!) and to catch everyone up to speed, may I ask those of you online right now who are currently doing an IDYA project to give a quick summary of what you're doing? Lianna - will you talk about your WNBA experience?

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:02:10 PM EDT 2003
Thanks

Hi

Carolyn IDYA, 15, Sam's Sis  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:03:22 PM EDT 2003
Wow Lianna I haven't heard about that yet and it is a really good idea! Are you gonna coordinate it?

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:03:24 PM EDT 2003
Hi

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:03:56 PM EDT 2003
Lianna that sounds really cool- it would get info out there

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:04:07 PM EDT 2003
I hadnt heard about it either

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:04:57 PM EDT 2003
Hey Kara

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:05:00 PM EDT 2003
The WNBA game was August 2nd, and I did a table on IDYA at the Shock game, I have much stuff to send out to people.IT took a while before we could even set-up but things went smooth. Me and Kristin (IDYA) did the table together, and had much support on the Karen Murphy petiton/

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:05:11 PM EDT 2003
Lianna, can you get more details from the lady as far as what is involved with local vs state vs national exposure? Information is needed before you can make a decision. That is a great project for you to work on... can you find out more and send some of the details via the listserv?

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:05:24 PM EDT 2003
Elizabeth- who is the moderator for next month? Grin 

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:05:31 PM EDT 2003
Maybe IDYA in different states could volunteer to work on it in their state. Or is it possible, Lianna, to go nation-wide with it and have a group of IDYA all collaborate on it.

*bRoOkE* 14/f/va dx'd @9  (152.163.252.2) Wed Aug 13 09:05:50 PM EDT 2003
hey everyone

hi brooke

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:06:14 PM EDT 2003
Umm Carolyn , I planned on being the coordiantor but will need help! Grin 

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:06:42 PM EDT 2003
Lianna- If you want to do it next month, I didnt know if we had a set month yet but you pick which month!

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:06:49 PM EDT 2003
Hi Brooke- (vballchic) also

Jay   (151.199.240.154) Wed Aug 13 09:07:02 PM EDT 2003
Lianna, that is a great idea and it might be worth while to try it out in one state first then send it to others. Maybe I can get hold of one of the celebrities I've written to out in California and see if they would help get it in theatres out there.

Sam Moderator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:07:02 PM EDT 2003
Lianna- Did you get any photos from the event that we could put on the website? And also, would you be willing to do a write-up about it?

martyn 15 male scotland VERY TIRED  (62.252.128.10) Wed Aug 13 09:07:46 PM EDT 2003
is there any thing i can do to help

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:07:54 PM EDT 2003
Need more info. Coordinating something nationwide is pretty difficult. It might be biting off more than you can or want to chew at one time! I'd suggest starting small (local theater), then improving it and working the kinks out, and then seeing if you can expand. We do have contacts in the entertainment industry, but definitely want to work with them further on down the road when the ideas are more concrete and perhaps there is a 'first product.'

martyn 15 male scotland VERY TIRED  (62.252.128.10) Wed Aug 13 09:07:57 PM EDT 2003
help anything

*bRoOkE* 14/f/va dx'd @9  (152.163.252.2) Wed Aug 13 09:08:57 PM EDT 2003
ya if theres ever anything u guyz need help with im here

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:09:02 PM EDT 2003
Well here is the thing about State vs. Nationwide. If we do it in only one state then we can chose a few theatres to do it at and it will be less money, obviously nationwide will be more expensive. If we decide to do only 10 theatres total, then it will run us at $1000, so we will somehow need to decide on the money, issue and I think that will decide how many theatre we would like to do???

Michelle 12, IDYA  (152.163.252.2) Wed Aug 13 09:09:03 PM EDT 2003
I'm new to the IDYA, and i dont know what kind of things to do to help  Frown 

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:09:04 PM EDT 2003
Tell me how I can help

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:09:19 PM EDT 2003
Martyn - there is ALWAYS something to do to help - let's keep talking and I am sure somewhere in this next hour, one of the ideas will just absolutely hit you as something you want to work on - or someone you want to work with. That's a huge reason to 'chat!'

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:09:49 PM EDT 2003
Elizabeth- Next month is fine with me so whatever you want??

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:09:50 PM EDT 2003
Martyn- there are many things you could do. You are our only IDYA in Scotland so far, so you could work on spreading the word about IDYA in Scotland. I know I for one would like to learn more about how diabetes is managed in Scotland.

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:09:59 PM EDT 2003
Lianna, where are you getting the funds for this?

Kara new to IDYA, pumper  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:10:08 PM EDT 2003
Is there anything that I can do?  Confused 

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:10:39 PM EDT 2003
Lianna- I can do October

sam- I have pictures mmom was supposed to send it last week but my sister came down with both strep and poision ivy, so i don't know if she sent it or not?? This wek I am visiting in Pennslyvania so this is actually my vaca , kinda!

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:11:35 PM EDT 2003
It seems like we have a lot of new IDYA here who would like to get involved. There are many projects we could use help on and many ways you could come up with your own projects for example.

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:11:37 PM EDT 2003
Elizabeth- ok thats fine.

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:12:27 PM EDT 2003
Laura- That is the one thing I was hoping IDYA could brainstorm on and figure out all together, since it will be very pricey$$$

Sam Moderator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:13:35 PM EDT 2003
Martyn- I know that there are a lot of teens with diabetes in the UK with diabetes. It would be really cool if some of you guys could come together and do a project focusing on diabetes in the UK.

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:13:44 PM EDT 2003
Jay- That actually would be very helpful!! Thank you!! IF you have a specific idea could you e-mail me personally, bballstroster@yahoo.com

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:13:46 PM EDT 2003
In terms of funding for the Slides Lianna is talking about, maybe one project for a group of IDYA would be to negotiate with different theaters to see if they could donate the screen time.

Hi what does IDYA stand for  Confused 

Carolyn IDYA, 15, Sam's Sis  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:14:42 PM EDT 2003
Lianna- Just an idea but if you broke IDYA volunteers down into groups according to location (like state or region or something) and they could raise the funds together... just a thought...

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:15:23 PM EDT 2003
Yea, I could definantly help wiht that

Good Idea Carolyn

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:16:43 PM EDT 2003
Carolyn, That was actually my idea! I was thinking maybe I could have IDYA's volunteer by sending me and e-mail stating where they are at,ect, and I could put groups together by region?? does everyone like that?

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:17:06 PM EDT 2003

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:17:30 PM EDT 2003
Martyn - I'd like to echo Sam's idea. I'd love to see a larger UK group of teens - there are a ton of parents on the CWD parents listserv from the UK!

Lianna- something that may help with that...we have enough IDYA in the USA to start organizing them into regions. Maybe that way you could email them individually and recruit them for the project.???

Sam Moderator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:18:21 PM EDT 2003
Martyn- Here's an idea. You could coordinate a chat for kids in the UK who have diabetes.

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:18:21 PM EDT 2003

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:19:05 PM EDT 2003
yeah and you'd have help

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:19:12 PM EDT 2003
Lianna - let's get our arms around this idea. How about if you have a conversation with your contact to get details about prices, about the possibility of donating screen time (and the procedure for applying for that), etc.

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:19:18 PM EDT 2003
I am sory someone said about getting this typed up on the website, I sent it to Anja and she said that I might want to get things alittle more detailed. So once this is all put together I will send another paper to Anja!

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:19:37 PM EDT 2003
Martyn...for example, through your diabetes clinic you could contact other teens with diabetes and tell them about IDYA. Also you could have meetings or chats...as Sam just said.

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:20:42 PM EDT 2003
I don't see Sydney Johnson on line tonight, but she and I had a conversation a week or so ago about a Buddy Program, matching up "old IDYA's" with "brand new IDYA's" to introduce new people to the group and the process, be a friend, etc. She said she'd like to coordinate that. I'm sure she could use help.

Kara new to IDYA  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:21:18 PM EDT 2003
That sounds like a good idea.

martyn 15 male scotland VERY TIRED  (62.252.128.10) Wed Aug 13 09:21:26 PM EDT 2003
thats a good idea clare and sam
il think inhow to devolpe that idea

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:21:40 PM EDT 2003
I can help with that if she needs any help! That is a really good Idea

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:21:43 PM EDT 2003
(Martyn - I never have a clue what to do at 1:45 in the morning... hang in there... you're doing great!)

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:21:50 PM EDT 2003
Oh- a note to everyone...and Elizabeth could you include this in your list update...
I would like a couple of lines or a short paragraph about any fundraising or supply donating they have done for the kids in Honduras. I'm sending the info paragraph about that to Anja, and I would like to have in it words from all the IDYA who have been involved.

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:21:52 PM EDT 2003

Hey before we get much deeper into discussion I would like to give a little notice about IDYA t-shirts left over from the conference... Any IDYA who wasn't at the Orlando conference or didn't get one while they were there can have one. They are either blue or white and we have sizes S-L. If you would like one send me an email at big_C_rocks@yahoo.com

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:22:25 PM EDT 2003
Yeah...my compliments Martyn.

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:23:08 PM EDT 2003
Clare- What do you want me to put in the update?

Sam Moderator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:23:19 PM EDT 2003
For those of you who weren't here last chat or for those who forgot, Laura B, aka my mom, said that she can call up a chat at any time, so anybody who's having a problem or needs to talk to other IDYA's, talk to her about it.

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:23:31 PM EDT 2003
Clare, would you please update everyone re: last week's donation?

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:24:19 PM EDT 2003
Laura- Here is what I thought, having the regions maybe possibly contact people in their area about donating it for us?? But I figured first get the regions, then assign certain things to the groups. But I figure we will be needing at the minimum at $5,000. so I think to start off I will need to decide these groups!! Could those IDYA's that want to help with this, e-mail me at bballstroster@yahoo.com and from there I will do groups, if you guys forget, don't worry I will send an e-mail about this again Grin !

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:24:27 PM EDT 2003
Elizabeth...just that anyone who has done any kind of fundraising for the Honduras project should email me.

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:24:42 PM EDT 2003
Thanks for the reminder, Sam. IDYA can have 'impromptu chats' at any time. Let me know if there is a topic you want to discuss, some brainstorming that needs to be done, a call for advocacy that needs to go out... and we can get a chat scheduled immediately - send out an email letting everyone know about it - and VOILA (that was for you Clare, practicing my francais...)

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:26:31 PM EDT 2003
Clare- Does that include donations

What's the Honduras project?

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:28:23 PM EDT 2003
For anyone who would like to serve as an "old IDYA" with the Buddy Program, let me know, and I'll pass your name along to Sydney. (email me privately) Then, as we get new IDYAs signing on, we'll match them up with you. There are a LOT of new people - I think we've had about 60 or so new IDYAs in the last month. Thank you to Sam, Elizabeth, and Clare for doing ALL the bio write-ups. That is a huge amount of work.

Kara new to IDYA  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:29:55 PM EDT 2003
How can you get to be apart of the BUddy Program?  Confused 

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:30:00 PM EDT 2003
Sure Laura. I have some great news!
After the Diabetes Educators conference in Salt Lake, when companies were breaking down their booths on the Trade Show floor, Laura and I went around to different companies and told them about the Honduras project...sending supplies to kids with diabetes in third world countries. In short...we spent about an hour carrying HUGE boxes of donated supplies...everything from meters and strips, to glucos, alchohol swabs and lancets. Plus a TON MORE!!!! There were a total of 300 pounds of diabetes supplies. They were shipped to my house for distribution.
And not only do we have enough to send them to Honduras...Laura and I are establishing contacts in Colombia and other countries to send them to!

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:31:04 PM EDT 2003
Kara! New to IDYA! I think you may be one of the first buddies!  Grin 

The object of the idea is to hook up a new IDYA with an experienced IDYA so you can have an immediate friend in the organization. One of you 'oldies' want to be Kara's buddy? Now?

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 09:31:28 PM EDT 2003

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:32:56 PM EDT 2003
It was pretty amazing. I guess all you need to do is ask! Clare and I were just looking at ALL the leftovers and thought - why not? Also, just the fact that we went to the companies and asked put the bug in their ear that IDYA has such a program going. I'm sure we just hit the tip of the iceberg. Lots of potential here.

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:33:00 PM EDT 2003
We still need more work raising money to buy insulin...because we could not get any of that, and it is very expensive. Also, we need to have fundraisers to help cover the cost of shipping so many boxes. (And there are a lot of boxes...my back hurt that night!) Cool  Cool  I was a GOOD HURT though, because so many kids are going to receive help because of it.

Her son is one of the head chairman of JDRF. I discussed everything about us, and she was vey intrested. I gave her a card and I am sure she will check out the site. She said that she will mention me, and our group to her son!!

Jay   (151.199.240.154) Wed Aug 13 09:47:00 PM EDT 2003
Any word on the UN?

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:47:01 PM EDT 2003
Lianna - The dates are already set for the next few chats - I'll send them out in an email so everyone can mark calendars (and then I'll send reminders).

Kara new to IDYA  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:47:14 PM EDT 2003

martyn 15 male scotland VERY TIRED  (62.252.128.10) Wed Aug 13 09:48:09 PM EDT 2003
is it earlir time than this

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:48:26 PM EDT 2003
Okay...for those new to IDYA, I will be presenting later this month on IDYA's behalf at the International Diabetes Federation conference. This is really neat for us, especially because they have never invited young people to speak before. I am going to introduce them to IDYA, who we are, what we do, and what our goals are. Then I will ask them, when they return to their native countries, to contact youth with diabetes there and get them involved in IDYA. The attendees are from the national diabetes associations in 130 countries...so this opens up a lot of doors for us!

Kaitlyn 13 dx'd at 2- pumper  (24.187.33.163) Wed Aug 13 09:49:26 PM EDT 2003
Clare that sounds really exciting.

Drew Lawson 17/m TN dx'd June 4, 2002. Pumping w/ Mimimed Paradigm  (66.82.214.4) Wed Aug 13 09:49:31 PM EDT 2003
cool, great to hear Clare!!!

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:49:48 PM EDT 2003
Martyn one thing you should note is, we have some euro chats on saturday's so it is conveint for your time! if the next one is late maybe try a euro chat?? just a suggestion, the next one is prob. on a school night

Sam Moderator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:50:05 PM EDT 2003
Martyn- We have a chat scheduled with Europeans in mind coming up on a Saturday in September. Would you be interested in moderating it?

Kara new to IDYA  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:50:24 PM EDT 2003
That sounds great Clare.

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:50:25 PM EDT 2003
Clare has been so adamant in requesting photos from all of you because she wants to put a 'face' to IDYA - actually, a lot of faces. She wants the IDF delegates to see how beautiful and healthy all of you are, and how important it is to continue to advocate for good health care and research for the cure... all around the world.

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:51:10 PM EDT 2003
I met a Diabetes Educator at the Salt Lake conference who says she has a friend at the UN...she said she would put me in touch with him, so we'll see if we can get another contact. Smile 

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:51:32 PM EDT 2003
Kara- how old are you?

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:51:37 PM EDT 2003
A noon chat on a Saturday works well for a lot of people. It's Saturday evening in Europe, Saturday morning in California, and lunchtime here in Michigan!

Drew Lawson 17/m TN dx'd June 4, 2002. Pumping w/ Minimed Paradigm  (66.82.214.4) Wed Aug 13 09:51:41 PM EDT 2003

Kara new to IDYA  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:52:19 PM EDT 2003
Laura, is there an address to send the pictures to?

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:52:29 PM EDT 2003
Laura...could we maybe start having two chats a month...one on this time and one Euro timed? That way we can have more opportunities for IDYA everywhere to join in.

Kara new to IDYA  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:52:30 PM EDT 2003

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:52:32 PM EDT 2003
The purpose of working with the UN is to have a resolution naming an International Diabetes Awareness Day, correct Clare?

Yea, whats the scrapbook?

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:54:04 PM EDT 2003
I think he did...I have been talking to him a little. I will double check on the date...I'm not sure when he last wrote me.

Kara new to IDYA, 11  (205.188.208.6) Wed Aug 13 09:54:22 PM EDT 2003
Lianna- i live in Illinois, really close to Chicago, what about you?

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:54:23 PM EDT 2003
I think that's a great idea - two chats per month, one on a Saturday or Sunday and the other on a weekday evening. I'll work up a schedule with the moderators who have volunteered. Let me know if you're interested - it's not hard - you just need to keep the conversation going and answer 'factual' questions as they come up.
 Smile 

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:55:23 PM EDT 2003
Yeah he mentioned that he really hopes we can come and if we need anything just e-mail him so...

Carolyn IDYA, 15, Sam's Sis  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:56:00 PM EDT 2003
Yep I'm making a scrapbook of all the IDYA members and various projects that we have been working on for showing at conferences, etc. I need people to send me pictures of themselves and/or pictures from any projects that you have done as an IDYA or related to diabetes.

Lianna IDYA,12  (68.68.109.160) Wed Aug 13 09:56:01 PM EDT 2003

Carolyn, do you have pics from me, i'm not sure??

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 09:58:27 PM EDT 2003
For those of you who don't know, my full time job (aside from being Sam and Carolyn's mom) is to coordinate all CWD conferences and events. So, I go to other people's conferences (like the ADA, the Canadian Diabetes Association, Diabetes UK, etc.), and set up a booth with the CWD website and lots of information. I bring scrapbooks from our conferences. I asked Carolyn to make a scrapbook specifically for IDYA so we can showcase what you all are doing. I really admire all of you for your efforts.

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 09:58:31 PM EDT 2003
I saw some of the scrapbook you did when i was at AADE. It is awesome Carolyn!

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 10:05:11 PM EDT 2003
Just make sure you have your name on the photo so I get it with the right bio on the IDYA pages! You also can read your bio and make sure it's a good reflection of you. I can always edit - it isn't hard - but I have to know what you want me to say about you!

Good night Clare. Tell your mom it was great to hear from her the other night.

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 10:11:23 PM EDT 2003
Okay Jay. She sends her love. It is nice to see you! Take care!

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 10:11:28 PM EDT 2003
Clare- did she meanfor me to send it toeveryone or to wait and send it to her 1st? I mean the email update

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 10:12:35 PM EDT 2003
I'm not sure Elizabeth...I think she wants you to type it, send it to her for approval, and then you can send it. Is that correct Laura?

Eliz - Send it to me and I'll post it in the new area (I also want to check accuracy to make sure my notes match up with yours before we post anything to the world - that way if there is a discrepancy, we can discuss).

Elizabeth IDYA 14 dx'd @ 3  (216.98.91.153) Wed Aug 13 10:14:13 PM EDT 2003
So after sending it to you, can I send it to the YouthAmbassadors?

Laura B IDYA Coordinator  (68.40.169.224) Wed Aug 13 10:14:16 PM EDT 2003
G'night everyone. Cup of tea, then a good book and a soft pillow....

Eliz - Let's talk privately on email - I want to see what the new posting area looks like - we may just send an email to the group referring them to the new Updates section. That will get people in the habit of going there for 'news' instead of waiting for email to magically appear.

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 10:15:22 PM EDT 2003

Hi Cheese...I'm sorry you just joined in before we shut down. You can email me later if you would like to talk about diabetes and IDYA: clare.rosenfeld@childrenwithdiabetes.com

Cheese   (152.163.252.2) Wed Aug 13 10:24:08 PM EDT 2003
YOu are going to shut down this room?

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 10:24:48 PM EDT 2003
It shuts down automaticly in a few minutes. We officially ended about 25 min ago...it closes half an hour later.

Cheese   (152.163.252.2) Wed Aug 13 10:25:21 PM EDT 2003
What is IDYA

Cheese   (152.163.252.2) Wed Aug 13 10:26:53 PM EDT 2003
 Confused 

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 10:26:55 PM EDT 2003
IDYA stands for the International Diabetes Youth Ambassadors. We are young people from around the world that want to learn how diabetes is managed in different countries, and want to help others who are affected by diabetes. Basicly..a group of friens who works together to do good things... Grin 

Clare Rosenfeld IDYA; 17 years old  (67.250.105.99) Wed Aug 13 10:27:47 PM EDT 2003
You can email me later and we can talk more. I would love for you to get involved with us! Cool
