This is Type 1 Podcast

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 ~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.

My co-host, Jessie Tuggey, is Tim’s and my pseudo-daughter from Panther Camp. I’ve known her since she first came to Panther Camp at age 9, after diagnosis at age 8. 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.
