Type 1 Diabetes is challenging, frustrating, and life-changing. Each Tuesday, join Colleen Mitchell and Jessie Tuggey, life-long diabetics, as they talk about real life with Type 1, discussing the impact it makes on their lives without defining them.

If you have type 1, know someone with type 1, or just want to learn more about this incurable condition, this podcast is for you. 

I'm Colleen Mitchell, a writer, analyst, and entrepreneur. I've had type 1 diabetes for over 24 years and am a major advocate for educating others about this disease. I'm not shy about talking about how it's affected my life and what I hope for in the future.

She's pursuing engineering and loves being outdoors. Jessie's also excited to make diabetes education more accessible, especially for her friends that don't know it very well.
