Brody is no stranger to giving back to those around him, in fact, he wants to make it his career one day by working in emergency medicine. In addition to his interest in science, computers and mathematics, Brody is incredibly passionate about volunteering and helping others, particularly his fellow members of the T1D community. “I have made sure to personally reach out to those who are experiencing trouble or difficulty with T1D. I try to share my experiences with T1D, and any tips or tricks I might be able to offer.” Brody can’t wait to bring his passion for advocacy to D.C.
