New Kid On The DOC.

If you're on Twitter, towards the end of last week you may have noticed the addition of the "#OurD" hashtag on numerous tweets from members of the DOC. Well, on Friday, all was explained to us. There's a new kid on the DOC: Our Diabetes.

Taken directly from their website:

"Our Diabetes is a community led, community focused platform that enables people with diabetes to be empowered, educated and supported in their condition.

Our aims are to give people within the diabetes online community (#doc) a voice by hosting their own 'tweet' chats on a diabetes topic of their choice. As the diabetes community continues to grow and develop we recognise the need to bring people together to share resources, ideas, experiences and opinions.

Our Diabetes also strives to provide trusted health care information that will help you to understand more about your diabetes as well as highlight events, campaigns, current and future research and technologies.
We see success in connecting and communicating. We believe that connecting like minded people will allow them to reach resources and other platforms that can benefit them and their diabetes. By communicating we can share knowledge in a welcoming, safe and transparent environment."

So, every Tuesday, starting from October 15th 2013, between 8pm and 9pm (write date and time in your diary) there will be a new tweet-chat taking place using the hashtag "#OurD". Being a community-led organisation, if you will, if there's a topic you would like to discuss during this hour you can contact the lovely team behind this idea and give them your suggestions. You can even host if you want to! Just use the "Contact Us" link on their page and let them know when you would like to host.
