I transcend while living with diabetes by advocating for affordability, technology, and education through my current job and my pursuit of my MPA. As a public information officer for our county public health department, I am able to speak out for diabetics and help in education events throughout our county. Personally, I’m back in school to get my Masters in Public Administration to help advocate for policy change and budgets that include both awareness and funding for diabetes.
