|Robin Edelman and her cat “ET” (Extra Toes)
After 30 years of experience in diabetes prevention and control, Robin Edelman will retire this spring from the Vermont Department of Health. She was a member of the Diabetes Council for 10 years and held leadership positions within the Professional Development Workgroup and the Peg Adams Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program.
“Robin was assigned as my mentor in 2010. I was new to diabetes in the public health setting, and we just had staff turnover. Without her, I would have been just lost my first year. I will always value her warmth and friendship and willingness to be there for me. She was like a compass. Any time I had a question – I’d call her. I felt like she was my guiding star.”
