Dan Fleshler is a writer and media strategist in New York City. In October, 2013, he started a blog called The Insulin Chronicles, which conveys the lessons he has learned and the mysteries he has encountered from living with Type 1 diabetes since...1962. This is a new direction for him. Previously, most of his writing focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the organized American Jewish community.
It is safe to say that he is the only writer in the universe who has published a personal essay about diabetic complications as well as an op-ed analyzing Palestinian-Israeli security cooperation in the West Bank.
Professionally, he has represented a wide range of corporate and not-for-profit clients, including health care providers. He is a board member of Ameinu and Americans for Peace Now and is on the Advisory Council of J Street, three American Jewish organizations that advocate active, balanced U.S. engagement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
He has ghost-written and placed numerous op-eds in major American newspapers during the last two decades. Op-eds and features under his own byline have been published in New York Times, Village Voice, Forward, New York Jewish Week, Ha’Aretz, Reform Judaism magazine and other publications.
