This week, meet three hard-working people with diabetes who are dedicating themselves to helping others with T1D.

DiaTribe editor & columnist Adam Brown is the author of Bright Spots & Landmines, the diabetes guide “I wish someone had handed me.” Adam talks about his diagnosis as a teen, why he decided to write the book and what topics were more difficult for him.

Stacey also checks in with Bike Beyond! This week, Miss American contestant Sierra Sandison shares why she wanted to join the cross-country ride. You can learn more and donate to Bike Beyond here.

Plus, what’s Dancing 4 Diabetes? Elizabeth Forrest started this event when she was diagnosed at age 10. Eighteen years later, it’s turned into a year-round event that’s helping educate and raise awareness.
