Insulin Resilience: How Diabetes Shapes Lives for the Better
The goal of the keynote is to inspire. It is to inspire the type 1 community specifically to think differently about what a diagnosis means and how those living exceptional lives with type 1 view their condition. The commonality among all those living with type 1 at the highest levels teach us something very important about how all of us can approach the condition differently. It's these insights that I share through stories and examples that serve to inspire and influence positive change. The message goes deeper than just type 1 in offering an approach to all audiences who want to be inspired to move beyond challenges and live with greater satisfaction and pride. The message is a reminder that some aspects of our lives that are the most challenging end up serving us the most.
