Inspired by Diabetes U.S. National Contest Winners Share Stories of Perseverance and Success in Managing Diabetes
Date:6/5/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, June 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Drawing cartoons to help people manage the psychological challenges of diabetes was not where Theresa Garnero -- a San Francisco-based nurse -- thought her career path would lead her.

Then a good friend convinced her to combine a love of drawing with her passion for helping people, particularly young children.

Inspired by Diabetes is a global collaboration between Lilly and the International Diabetes Federation's Unite for Diabetes initiative.

The second year of the U.S. national competition will officially launch this summer.

(The pancreas is the body's organ that produces insulin to regulate blood sugar levels; in people with diabetes, the pancreas makes little or no insulin, ofte
