By using the principles of Sugar Surfing I was able to lower my A1C from 7.4 to 6.3 and then to 6.0. Having a lower A1C makes me happy, no doubt there, and using Sugar Surfing techniques empowers me with this disease. I know that I can manage it, make decisions in the moment, and get desired results. Sugar Surfing allows me to be proactive; not to wait for someone to tell me what I should have done days or months ago.” – BettyAnn Foster, Alpine Texas (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults (LADA) since 2011)

Armed with the empowering philosophy of Sugar Surfing, you know how to read the BG curves and the patterns, how to respond without over-responding and how to deal with just about any situation that comes up. The days now flow with a more flexible and “normal” rhythm. Best of all, I know I’m not alone no matter what the day’s challenges.” – Marcy and Robert Garriott, Austin, Texas (Grand Aunt and Uncle of 6 year old with type 1 diabetes)

The event will be a full Sugar Surfing Workshop by Dr. Stephen Ponder, MD FAAP CDE. There is no charge to attend. However, donations are accepted. If you prefer to send a donation by mail, checks can be made out to “Sugar Surfing”. Please send email to Dr. Ponder to obtain the mailing address.
