Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, and to all the Mom’s, Grandparents, and others who fill in as Dads. My hardest job and greatest achievement has been raising these 3 kiddos, and I’m grateful for all the experiences we’ve been blessed to share!

Donald unfortunately lost his son to the opioid epidemic. From first exposure to loss of life in just a few months. My heart breaks for families like the Holmans and & I working with to raise awareness & prevent youth initiation.

Appreciated the wide ranging talk on ways to address the opioid epidemic. Every community needs to have a discussion on how it is impacting them, and what they can do to respond- and I hope the science is a key part of those discussions!

It is within our power to reduce to zero by accelerating our efforts to make the use of cigarettes and other products a thing of the past.

My charge to the committee: think innovatively about what is needed to support science-based interventions, specifically at the federal level, so that we can reach our shared goal of a tobacco-free generation. Tomorrow’s generation is depending on it.

Quinn- I would love to and plan to do that. It was never my intent to upset anyone and I hope we all can use this as an opportunity to talk about stigma, and to help empower everyone with a chronic disease- especially those who struggle with type 1 diabetes.

Thanks to all who pointed out how my tweet could have been misinterpreted and actually contributed to stigma. I don’t want anyone with any disease to feel stigmatized- and my remarks illustrate why we must always be cognizant of what we say and how we say it.

Many different diseases can be caused or exacerbated by behavior and environment. But we should NEVER prejudge anyone’s worthiness to receive medical treatment - whether type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, or someone with opioid use disorder.
