Episode 50 - Diabetics Doing Call to Congress with Basma Adams

Hard to believe we've reached 50 episodes! I'm super grateful to each and every listener, guest and supporter over the last 18 months. We couldn't do it without you. 

My 50th guest is Basma Adams (@bastheboss on Instagram). Don't let her age fool you, Basma is leading the charge for T1D advocacy on multiple fronts, including the steps of Capitol Hill. Basma represented T1Ds in 2017 during the ADA's "Call to Congress" in Washington, where she spent her time meeting face to face with representatives from across the country, in a day where she was focused on "making diabetes a priority." 

Basma and I talk about her diagnosis, experience during her 10+ years of advocacy work and the launch of her new blog. It's a great conversation, and we look forward to seeing what's next for the 2014 ADA National Youth Advocate.
