Doing my part to spread awareness of diabetes, even if it’s just through this little podcast, during American Diabetes Month, my guest for Episode 108 is Virtue B. Living with type 1 diabetes, we talk about her diagnosis and the impact of Canada’s healthcare system on her diabetes care. There’s also some talk about hockey and its relative importance both with her personally and to the “average Canadian.” Finally we get academic and talk about her research, the writing under pressure and the difference in perspectives between the medical professional and the patient when it comes to diabetes care.
