Welcome! I’m Shawn Shepheard.
But feel free to call me
Sugar Free Shawn!
Years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes and after years of learning everything I can about the body, traveling the world teaching others how to live well & happy with the disease, and being a tireless advocate for those living with and caring for those with diabetes, I am proof positive that you can have a full and healthy life despite this diagnosis.
I travel the world helping health care providers better serve their diabetic patients.
I speak to those living with diabetes and I share my journey and my commitment to live happy and well in the hopes that I will inspire just one more person to embrace the disease rather than feel victimized by it.
I give keynote addresses and host workshops for corporations, governmental agencies and health care organizations all over the world.
I play hockey every chance I get.
I am the former chair the Canadian Diabetes Association’s National Advocacy Council, and I lead advocates in getting coverage of insulin pumps and test strips in provinces across the country.
I host the Sugar Free Shawn Show where I bring in experts to share their best advice on living well, with or without diabetes.
And, I write about all of it on my blog. Good stories. Good people. Good times.
That’s because I care about you and the people you care about.
