A Type 1 Diabetes Guide to the Universe – Joe Solowiejczyk
Our first featured book is A Type 1 Diabetes Guide to the Universe. This is a fantastic eBook was created by Joe Solowiejczyk, RN MSW CDE, diabetes nurse educator and family therapist.
In addition to Joe’s qualifications, he has a very deep understanding of Type 1 Diabetes as he himself has lived with it for 50 years, and has been a diabetes healthcare professional for over 35 years!
A Type 1 Diabetes Guide to the Universe is the first book to integrate the psychological and emotional aspects of dealing with diabetes into the core of its approach. It is filled with practical advice and suggestions on how to successfully integrate coping and diabetes management into your daily lives.
It also makes use of the most current and creative e-publishing tools available to give you a rich resource to read, interact with and hear all sorts of information that will help you and your family.
Joe is also the founder of A Mile In My Shoes, which was created to ensure that patients and families living with diabetes worldwide would have access to the most practical and up-to-date information needed to manage living with diabetes AND thrive while doing so.
We have had the privilege of meeting Joe and attending some of his presentations. His insight, knowledge and experience are like no other.
We love this book for many reasons and the way it addresses the psychological and emotional challenges is quite unique and beyond compare.
