More About the Author
Riva Greenberg is a recognized diabetes patient-expert, inspirational speaker, author, and health coach, who has lived successfully with type 1 diabetes for more than forty years.
Her latest book, "Diabetes Do's & How-To's," came from traveling across the country as a peer-mentor and seeing how confused and bereft they are of the essential actions to take - and how to take them - to live their healthiest life with diabetes.
Riva is a trusted KOL for pharmaceutical companies bringing the patient voice to health care, and an international speaker at conferences, health expos, hospitals and corporations. She is also transforming the way we live with chronic illness through workshops she conducts on "flourishing with chronic illness." "It is time flourishing enters the language of living with a chronic illness alongside coping." Riva also advises medical professionals on helping patients make behavior changes through a series of presentations called "Ask the Patient" on QuantiaMD.com.
Riva's three books create a trilogy, and the essential foundation one needs, from which to manage diabetes well. Her first book, "The ABCs Of Loving Yourself With Diabetes" helps readers develop the emotional strength, stamina and flexibility to manage diabetes for the long haul. Her second book, "50 Diabetes Myths That Can Ruin Your Life and the 50 Diabetes Truths That Can Save It" gives readers the necessary information and understanding of what diabetes is and how it works. And this book, "Diabetes Do's & How-To's," helps readers work it, for their personal needs. Riva also writes on The Huffington Post and in 2011 SharecareNow cited Riva as number six among the Top Ten online diabetes influencers.
Riva is an advisory member of the Diabetes Hands Foundation and a member of the American Association of Diabetes Educators and Diabetes Advocates.
