Amy Lynn Smith

Patient Leader

I use writing and communication as activism. I educate people about leading healthier lives through engagement in their own wellness, from the doctor's office to the ballot box. This includes improving health literacy on topics including healthcare reform, healthcare decision-making, wellness and health policy, often through storytelling. As a woman with type 1 diabetes, I've transformed my own health with Functional Medicine, losing 100 pounds by changing my eating/exercise habits. My doctor says I not only slowed the diabetes train headed to other conditions such as heart disease -- I've jumped off that train. I'll always have diabetes but my health is optimized.
