Debby Syahru Romadlon (Indonesia)

I became a carer for my father when he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2016. In my capacity as a professional diabetes educator, lecturer, and caregiver, I intend to use the Blue Circle Voices platform to learn and promote appropriate diabetes management based on high-quality evidence of research.

Riddhi Modi (India)

After being diagnosed with gestational and type 1 diabetes, I had to unlearn my lifestyle and adapt to another for effective diabetes management, focusing on nutrition, exercise and mental health. Going through the journey of denial, resistance and then acceptance I understood this important balance.

Ehab Ali (Bahrain)

When I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, it took me a very long time to understand how to live with my condition. Hearing stories and testimonies from other people with diabetes touched my heart and motivated me to speak about diabetes and promote healthier lifestyles.
