Last night dLifeTV aired the first Carb Kitty video game in one of their episodes. Can we say, ‘MEOW with a WOW!’??
The Carb Kitty video game series was inspired by a mother of child living with type 1 diabetes who attended the Taking Control Of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) Conference & Health Fair in Tampa, FL. She asked me to create a video game about ‘carb counting.’ It’s exciting to share these videos with the dLifeTV community. I’m now working on developing Carb Kitty into diabetes app.
The goal of the videos is to spark interest in learning more about carbohydrate counting with a registered dietitian. I want to thank Dr. Steve Edelman and the wonderful TCOYD team for inviting me to Tampa!
Eight years ago, dLifeTV launched the first ever television broadcast show bringing diabetes education and inspiration right into your home every Sunday. Hundreds of stories later, thousands of lives changed, dLife continues to bring you entertaining diabetes education, but now through a new channel—online. It will be the same great show, same time, just in a different place.
GUESS WHAT? I started Divabetic in the basement of the dLife studios when they had live audiences eight years ago. I volunteered to entertain the studio audience prior to the tapings with Mama Rose Marie and Stan the Announcer Man. We had an incredible time working together with Howard and the team to create an entertaining and informative approach to diabetes education. It was at these tapings that I met two of the most fabulous ‘Divabetics’: Mother Love and Nicole Johnson.
So tune in Sundays at 7pm ET / 4pm PT at www.dLifeTV.com for all new shows each week with the same people you know and love. You’ll find Jim Turner’s takes on life with diabetes in only the way he can; stories from real people struggling and achieving with diabetes just like you; and cooking tips from chef Michel Nischan in the dLife Kitchen.
Next Carb Kitty air dates are: March 3, March 10 and March 17, 2013.
