President Obama nominated the first Type 1 diabetic to the Supreme Court this morning. While this may not seem significant to the non-diabetic, I take great courage in seeing someone wrestling daily with this disease being given such great responsibility – all political views aside.
As technology advances making type 1 diabetes no longer a death sentence, it is a great time to be a diabetic. With Sonia Sonomayor’s nomination, my confidence grows in the public perceptions of this disease.
Diabetes Mine blog put together a great piece on the diabetic perspective of this nomination.
