A T1D hero is a strong, patient, and courageous person. They persevere through the extreme challenges of managing T1D. They work to achieve their goals, not letting T1D get in their way.

A T1D hero is the person living with T1D, their mom or dad, their brother or sister, their spouse or best friend, their doctors and nurses. Everyone impacted by T1D is a hero.

In this space, we highlight real T1D Heroes that give us hope. Read about a teenager with a Diabetes Alert Dog, a communication researcher on how to provide social support, a pediatric endocrinologist about artificial pancreas clinical trials and more!
