So, World Diabetes Day turned out to be quite an awesome day.  My celebration activities included wearing blue, taking part in a town hall style meeting at hosted by the good folks at the ADA office in Indianapolis, hanging out with Indy Car driver Charlie Kimball, and participating in the Big Blue Test with several folks who attended the ADA event.   Here are a few pictures.
