Below you will find an excerpt about treatment for depression from the Faculty of Harvard Medical School. First, however, I’d like to convey my strong, immediate reaction to the report. As I was reading this article, I thought about “The List”…the list of medications I took from 1961 to 1972…Valium being the first of my introductions to mind-altering drugs. I had no idea what they were or the damage they could do…I simply obeyed orders.Read more
I was so excited to receive a copy of Healthy at 100: 7 Tips to a Century of Great Health, written by Dr. Robert D. Willix, Jr., one of our newest Advisory Board members. As an author, I always like to read a book’s acknowledgements, foreword and list of contents and then just speed through the chapters before reading its full content.

The HSF recently held their 4th annual Hypoglycemia Takes Center Stage fundraising gala in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As host of this event, I have just a brief time during the evening to persuade the audience that the nature of our mission is critical and that our cause is worthy of their involvement and support. Here’s the message I shared… I love receiving The Oprah Magazine. On the last page, Oprah always writes a column… “What I knowRead more
My story…thank you Kevin Lane! I never pass up an opportunity to spread the HSF’s message. So when I got an invitation to attend an opening of a new dental clinic here in South Florida, I immediately said yes. It was here that I met Kevin Lane. Never did I imagine that he would write the following article and offer to do another with specific gala details right before the big event on October 18th. Yes, thank you so much Kevin Lane! WeRead more
A Hypoglycemia Story…Kelly’s View! I receive hundreds of e-mails each month and can’t possibly answer them all… it’s sad and very frustrating but a reality. However, when Kelly Phillip from Arkansas wrote me recently, not only did I respond to her but also asked if I could share her story with you, my hypoglycemia community. Kelly immediately gave her permission. Dear Roberta: I can't express how much I have appreciated and valued yourRead more
