Community and Solidarity: together we are a community, a true home to our members. Our differences make us stronger. We grow through the honest exchange of our diverse experiences.” We are together. We are a long-term home for all who share our values, with no arbitrary exclusions. Like a well-knit family, we accept and welcome differences. Because of our diversity, the sum of our experiences makes us all better.

Kindness: we care for and support each other.” This is the standard of behavior that we expect among all of us in our community.

Humor: we don’t let our challenges dictate who we are. Through humor we transcend adversity.” Kindness does not mean deadly seriousness. We accept and welcome zaniness and fun in how we communicate with each other - but not with unkindness.

Openness: we listen to our members and give them a voice in the direction of the community. We are transparent in our decisions.” We do the best we can to make collective decisions within the mission and values of our community, and with practicality. Our decisions are made transparently, using clear criteria.

Participation: we encourage our members to take on and drive new projects for our community.” We expect our members to lead most or all of the activities we have in the community. We, the members, are the community, and we drive it. We welcome and encourage people to propose new projects and ideas, and to step up and take them on.

Support: we enable our members’ initiatives against diabetes by giving them crowd-sourcing tools and a public platform.” We use our forum tools to enable our members’ local and global initiatives within our mission. We support them through our editorial board, our blogs, and our online presence.

Fearless fighting: we use our common and shared knowledge to fight diabetes. We are not afraid to want more than today offers, and we drive to make it happen.” Our members are heroes who fight diabetes non-stop, 24x7, with never a day off. We help our common fight by sharing our knowledge. We understand the weaknesses in the treatment, research, and prescription of diabetes: as a community, we push for progress in fighting diabetes and work together at making it happen. We are not waiting.
