Most of my work has focused on young people and families managing type 1 diabetes (T1D). Managing type 1 diabetes is challenging, often scary, and places never-ending demands on the affected individuals and their families. The good news is that many families manage diabetes quite well! We hope our research will help those with type 1 diabetes and their families manage this chronic condition.
