With Father’s Day coming up we’re taking a look at Dads and Diabetes. Two T1D Dads: Alan Nolte and Mark Turner share their perspective on raising children with diabetes.

Join the Diabetes Connections Facebook Group!

Alan and Mark met when their daughters hit it off at diabetes camp last year. The girls became long-distance friends and so did their dads. They started a podcast – Dads and Diabetes. They share their stories with Stacey, give us the “guy” perspective and explain what they’d love more D-Moms to keep in mind.
