Happy National Diabetes Awareness Month Type 1s and Nones! And OH MY, do I have just the episode to celebrate it with!!! This week it’s all about the spiciest topic I’ve discussed on the podcast to date: whether or not diabetes advocacy groups should be taking money from the insulin manufacturers? Now personally I don’t see there being much of a debate with this topic SO I decided to just talk about why I don’t think diabetes groups should be taking pharma money and invited some Type 1s on to talk about it with me. On this ALL Type 1 guest episode of Ask Me About My Type 1 I have on Abbie, Maddy, and Sierra who share with me all the reasons why they think pharma money is so very bad and the very clear conflict of interest present when it is taken by Diabetes advocacy groups.

I'm Walt and I've been living with my Type 1 Diabetes ever since June of 2000. I've spent most of the past two decades trying to ignore my condition with less than stellar results. But now I'm making up for lost time and doing my part to spread awareness the only way a millennial can these days: through a podcast! Join me and other Type 1s as we try to teach the Non-Type 1s in their lives what this whole T1DLyfe is all about. View all posts by askmeaboutmytype1
