Abstract

Martin Wood, Editor in Chief for The PLAID Journal, introduces the concept behind the journal and its goal of connecting individuals touched by diabetes including those working with diabetes and those living with diabetes. Wood also provides his own personal story about his relationship with diabetes. He says:

Diabetes has made me who I am, and it has made all of the people in the following pages who they are. Within this journal, you will meet a variety of people touched by diabetes, regardless of what type of diabetes they have been gifted with in their lives. You will meet people with diabetes, just like me. You will meet friends and loved ones of people with diabetes, who support us, love us, and admire us for far more than just our courage to live every day with a chronic disease. You will meet healthcare professionals who work to improve how we live with and understand diabetes, including endocrinologists, primary care physicians, certified diabetes educators, and more. You will also hear from researchers, and through their academic expertise and curiosity, gain from their perspectives about the disease.
