Jennifer Maizel | Diabetes 101

Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes ten years ago and have made it my mission to raise awareness and provide psychosocial support to others affected by the disease. During National Diabetes Awareness Month four years ago, I created "Diabetes 101" (@T1Diabetes101) on social media with the goal of sharing type 1 realities, eliminating stigma and empowering others to do the same. I work for the American Diabetes Association and I am pursuing a Master of Public Health degree. In the past, I have interned with JDRF and represented T1International as a Global Advocate.
