Diabetes Health magazine

Patient Leader

Diabetes Health Founder, Nadia Al-Samarrie was not only born into a family with diabetes but also married into one. She was propelled at a young age into “caretaker mode,” and with her knowledge of the scarcity of resources, support, and understanding for people with diabetes, co-founded Diabetes Interview, now Diabetes Health magazine. Nadia’s adeptness in diabetes health comes from more than 28 years’ experience as a caregiver, managing the myriad of Type 1, Type 2 and pre-diabetes related issues in her own family, as well as from the knowledge acquired through her devoted and passionate tenure as the publisher of the prominent Diabetes Health magazines and diabeteshealth.com.
