Beyond Type 2 x DiabetesSisters: Sisterhood Takeover


How does DiabetesSisters help you live #BeyondPowerful? 

Starting September 30th, sisterhood takes the spotlight on Beyond Type 2 and Beyond Type 1’s Instagram pages! We’re partnering with DiabetesSisters to show how women in their organization live #BeyondPowerful and #LiveBeyond with type 2 and type 1 diabetes, respectively. Founded in January 2008, DiabetesSisters is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the health and quality of life of women with diabetes and to advocate on their behalf. While the organization offers a range of education and support services to help women of all ages, it’s also known as a pioneer for peer support—connecting women with diabetes in-person and online.

Submission Guidelines

  • Must be a member of DiabetesSisters. 
  • Must have type 2 or type 1 diabetes.
    • Those with latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) or were misdiagnosed can feel free to choose to submit either under type 1 or type 2 diabetes. 
  • Send a plain image with no photoshop or Snapchat or Instagram filters. 
  • Photos can feature yourself or yourself with another person from DiabetesSisters who encourages you to live #BeyondPowerful or #LiveBeyond with type 2 or type 1 diabetes. 
  • Photos should be taken in front of a blank wall or open sky—please, no selfies, we need to have space to write on the photo. 
  • The image must be in focus + at least 800 pixels tall by 800 pixels wide. A good cell phone photo works.
