Paula DiVencenzo, tax manager for Tax and Treasury Services at Kent State, writes about how she and her family found out that she had type 1 diabetes. DiVencenzo discusses the symptoms on the Kent State Connects blog.

The Sneaky Symptoms of Diabetes

“I was exhausted after dance class. I couldn't get enough to drink and had more ‘pit stops.’ I was happy when I got on the scale because drinking diet pop was making me lose weight.  I just didn't feel good. I was tired of going to the school nurse because I was going to throw up in class. I got into trouble for calling my mom on the pay phone (remember those?). I had repeated trips to the doctor,” DiVencenzo says.

Fun Ways to Be Active Outside

With warmer months approaching, David Herpy, outdoor adventure coordinator at the Department of Recreational Services, talks about the many fun ways to be active outdoors.

“As an outdoor guy, both personally and professionally, there is no better feeling than being outside.  When I’m not coordinating outdoor adventure activities for the Department of Recreational Services or teaching outdoor activity classes for the College of Education, Health and Human Services, I’m spending as much of my free time as I can outside,” Herpy says.
