  • Weighing a Hidden Cost of T1D Tech

    Last night, I spoke to a small group of parents of athletes about type one diabetes management and exercise. Everyone was engaged and the sharing that came out of it was incredible. I’ve missed doing these discussions, which were frequent in the pre-pandemic days. One mother of a teenager was there in person (the others […]

  • T1D Then and Now

  • Talking About T1D and Exercise

    UPDATE (3/12/20): Due to the spread of COVID-19 this event has been postponed. A conflict with another event will prevent me from speaking at the rescheduled summit.

  • Type One Diabetes and the Injured Athlete

    I wrote this article for Heidi Armstrong’s Injured Athletes Toolbox. Heidi is a friend and tremendous resource for athletes who are struggling with the mental aspects of an injury.

  • Ford and JDRF: Partners for a Cure
