Sophie doesn’t let T1D stop her, and is determined to use her voice in D.C. to make sure progress in research and T1D tech continues to advance. “Thanks to today’s technology, I can chase my dreams and passions. If research and technology continue to improve, then life with T1D could become just a memory.”
