It’s nearly impossible to be involved in the Type-1 community without coming across the work of the amazing Lauren Bongiorno (@Lauren_Bongiorno on Instagram). A division-1 soccer athlete turned Yogi, Lauren talks about the challenges of growing up playing competitive sports with T1D, and how her type-a personality played into her success. Lauren is a very active Diabetic Health Coach, and works with top brands like Nike as a fitness influencer. Lauren is extremely involved in the T1D community, and frequently volunteers with JDRF as well as sitting on the Beyond Type 1 Global Ambassador Council. Don’t miss this candid interview with one of my favorite T1Ds.
