Diabetes Super Panel: Real Life Stories About Living With Diabetes All Day, Every Day
Play • 1 hr 22 min

As part of the First Annual Diapoint Type 1 Diabetes Virtual Family Picnic, in August 2020, we held a live diabetes panel discussion with five amazing people with Type 1 Diabetes from the Middle East.   This is our most listened to session from that event. It is definitely worth a replay, so we are sharing it again. There is so much wisdom and advice shared from our panel who are living with diabetes.


Advocates from the UAE, Kuwait, Palestine and Lebanon joined us for this lively diabetes discussion. During this session, they shared their stories and experiences with us about living with diabetes.
