Lee Ann Thill is one of my favorite people around. She is super smart and plugs into the emotional side of life with diabetes with experienced perception. She’s been wrestling with type 1 diabetes for a long time. She get’s it.
Looking to take her smartness to the next level, she’s gone back to school (hello, Dr. Thill!). She’s already 18-months into her doctoral program and has launched a pilot study that she hopes to develop her dissertation around. The pilot study is looking at type 1 diabetes and food and body issues — something that is probably more common than we might think.
Please take a look at her post, “Type 1 Diabetes + Food & Body Issues + Social Media + Creativity = VIAL Project“, for more details and some background.
You can help by spreading the word about her pilot study, or even participating if you feel that it fits you.
“Living with diabetes is like living with a tiger. If you feed it, groom it, never turn your back on it; you can live with a tiger. If you neglect it; it’ll pounce on you and rip you to shreds.”— William “Lee” Dubois
