Medical research related to Type 1 Diabetes has had an enormous impact on how I live my daily life. In the past 30 years, remarkable changes in diagnosis and treatment have improved the lifestyle of individuals affected by the disease. Please read the attached fact sheet from the National Institute of Health. You will be surprised by some of the statistics and you may also understand my passion for driving diabetic research in the future. We have come very far, but we still have very far to go.
