We are delighted to feature Erum and Erin as the advocates of a person with diabetes (PWD). PWD contemplate over 200 additional decisions in an average day, compared to one without diabetes. Erin has been living with diabetes since her childhood, and Erum since young adulthood. Both have a lot of wisdom that I have learned as a healthcare provider. Erum and Erin are teachers about diabetes and leaders. They are part of IDF Young Leaders who mentor and support other kids and young adults with diabetes. September is all about awareness of kids living with medical conditions. That said, I would like to celebrate, reflect and inspire not only kids living with diabetes, but healthcare professionals partnering with the journey.
