This week, Stacey moderates a frank conversation about women’s issues and type 1 diabetes.
You’ll hear about everything from periods to menopause to standing up to your doctors. The panel includes Elizabeth Forrest, the founder of Touched by Type 1, the conference where this panel took place, lawyer Risa Katz and Nicole Johnson, who is with JDRF now and was Miss America in 1999. All the women live with type 1 diabetes.
This is an excerpt of the full panel – we’ll run the entire thing in our “Extra” bonus episode which will follow this one by a few days.
In our Community Connection this week, we’ve been sharing the story of project 50 in 50 – two guys with type 1 tackling the highest peak in all 50 states in 50 days. They did it!
And TMSG: a little help from our friends goes a long way. Great story of support at the endo’s office.
