Episode 118 - JDRF North Texas Social Media Panel

This episode was recorded live on February 24, 2019 at the JDRF North Texas Type One Nation Summit. Over 650 people attended the conference, either living with Type 1 Diabetes, a caregiver of someone with Type 1 Diabetes or a healthcare professional.

  • Austin Fuerst - @Everyday_T1D

  • Jill Rippolone - @T1dChick

  • Chris Ruden - @ChrisRuden

  • Paloma Kemak - @GlitterGlucose

  • Ariel Lawrence - @Justalittle_suga
