American Diabetes Association – WTF?!

What was the American Diabetes Association here in Dallas thinking?!  Actually, this was from a few years ago, so hopefully this is an isolated incident! My hunch is it wasn’t anything their staff did – it was more likely a well-intended but misguided donation from a clueless vendor.

My husband (Type 1 diabetes since age 10) attended ADA’s Tour de Cure cycling fundraiser kickoff here in Dallas and brought back this picture of the refreshments.

Worth noting: practically everyone in attendance 1) has diabetes and 2) is extremely health-conscious. These folks invented the concept of “sometimes” foods and their idea of “sometimes” is once or twice a year. Weekly “cheat” days – nope, not these folks.

So no surprise that the treats were completely untouched even as the meeting ended.
