This week, meet Laurian Lane, a labor and delivery nurse now raising three children of her own. Laurian was diagnosed with type one diabetes in 8th grade. When she was older, she began babysitting for Stacey’s family!

You’ll hear Laurian’s perspective as a nurse, a sitter and now a mom with type 1. She has great advice for parents (and parents-to-be).

In our Community Connection this week, Stacey talks to Susan Sloane, the author of Sweet Genes: Finding a Balance Living with Diabetes. It’s their family’s story – Susan’s two sons were diagnosed with type 1 back in the 1980s and both now work in healthcare.

And in our Tell Me Something Good segment.. diabetes comes to your Xbox and it’s T1D day at the Georgia State Capitol.
