Patient Leader

My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2006, just before he turned two. Since that day, I’ve been amazed at the resilience and strength of the diabetes community. Diabetes can be a very isolating condition and making connections online & in person empower us in a way that is a vital complement to medical care. I started the podcast to help others feel that same powerful sense of “me too.” Diabetes Connections features prominent advocates, authors and speakers and includes “every day” people with diabetes and their friends and family. It's been an incredible experience for me and I'm thrilled that my listeners enjoy it!
