PatientsLikeMeOnCall: Living with Type 1 Diabetes

The Many Members of PatientsLikeMe

Welcome to the third installment of our new weekly podcast series called “It’s Friday – Let’s Journal Club.”

This week’s guest interview is with Sarah Taylor, a type 1 diabetes patient, registered nurse (RN) and friend of the company. Sarah stopped by PatientsLikeMe headquarters last Friday to talk about being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age nine and how PatientsLikeMe has become a part of her life today.

After this engaging “Journal Club” session, PatientsLikeMe’s Aaron Fleishman sat down with Sarah to learn more about how type 1 diabetes affects her day-to-day decisions – from eating to exercising – and how as a nurse she envisions shared patient data helping medical providers. Listen in below to hear what that might look like and also what advice she has for those who are newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
