2008 NFB Convention, Dallas TX, July 1-6
Laugh and Learn!


What’s so funny about diabetes? Nothing, says Jim Turner. But managing your diabetes? Well, that can reveal some interesting, and even hilarious, aspects of your personality. He does just that in “Diabetes: My Struggles with Jim Turner,” his one-man comedy show about four decades of living with diabetes.

Turner, a type I diabetic and veteran comedian and writer, says the audience always participates, and always ends up laughing at themselves more than at the disease. “I see them in the audience, laughing and nodding their heads and saying, ‘yep, I’ve done that,’” says Turner. Thanks to event sponsors DDI, the makers of the Prodigy Voice talking blood glucose meter, you can catch this witty and touching performance July 1, 2008, from 5 to 7 p.m., directly following the annual meeting of the NFB DAN. All convention attendees are welcome.
