Automated_Insulin_Delivery_by_DanaMLewis_example_covers_renderingNew! A book about artificial pancreas or “automated insulin delivery systems”. Available on Amazon and for Kindle, or see content at ArtificialPancreasBook.com

I’ve started writing children’s books to help me explain to my nieces and nephews how people are different. For me, my ‘different’ includes diabetes & celiac disease, but I’m also striving to help teach them that everyone is different in different ways. I’m hoping these books may also be helpful for others in having these conversations with the kids in their lives, too.
