A Mile in My Shoes, a company founded by Joe Solowiejczyk, a diabetes nurse educator and family therapist who has lived with Type 1 diabetes for over 50 years, was created to insure that patients and families living with diabetes worldwide would have access to the most practical and up-to-date information needed to manage living with diabetes AND thrive while doing so. Joe has first hand experience with the disease as he has been thriving with Type 1 for over 50 years!
     Our company focuses on providing counseling services for patients and training opportunities for healthcare professionals who wish to learn how to better integrate family therapy into their clinical skill sets.

     Additionally, A Mile in My Shoes is dedicated to producing fun, unique web-based presentations and learning resources for patients and their families wishing to increase their self-management knowledge base and emotional coping skills. The launching of the new e-book self-management manual, A Type 1 Diabetes Guide to the Universe, is a new and exciting part of that initiative.

MISSION   We aim to create and provide a caring, supportive and nurturing environment to support persons with diabetes, their families and the healthcare professionals that care for them

VISION   The folks at A Mile in My Shoes believe that people living with diabetes need comprehensive resources to thrive. We also know that health care professionals working in the field of diabetes should have the most advanced and clinically-relevant skills to be able to provide patients and their families with competent, compassionate and personalized care. Our vision creates a crossroads of information and support, and a platform for the sharing of life’s ups and downs related to diabetes and coping with it on a daily basis.
