Take a look behind the scenes of WNYC’s Sugarland. This radio series, podcast and comic made headlines around the country when it was first published. We’ll talk to the Mary Harris, editor and host of WNYC’s health unit and Dr. Cheryl Olson who has a son with T1D and who contributed to the series.

Gavin Griffiths is the founder of DiAthlete. An experienced distance runner and endurance maniac, Gavin has accomplished 74 extreme physical challenges – from running 30 mile marathons each day for 30 days, to cycling over serious inclines of the Alps – always motivated by living with type 1 diabetes. He just completed 25 marathons in one month!

Plus.. it’s graduation time! The College Diabetes Network has a new creation: The Off to Work Guide with Diabetes Guide for recent grads and anyone with diabetes in the workforce.

And a look back at an incredible event with Riding on Insulin & Stacey’s local JDRF chapter. The One Challenge was a first of its kind partnership.
