Proving the Internet is awesome, the co-founders of A Sweet Life, Jessica Apple and Michael Aviad, join me from Tel Aviv, Israel. As both Jessica and Michael have type 1 diabetes, the opening of our conversation covers their individual diagnosis stories. We then move to ‘A Sweet Life’, it’s inception, it’s initial reception, and it’s growth over the past few years. We also discuss the importance and impact of making science-heavy content accessible, and the value of the diabetes community when you’re living on the other side of the world. Finally, I learn about their newly formed non profit, the Diabetes Media Foundation. Enjoy.
