Ella’s Interview

Your interview with Ella was fascinating! She gave me a full range of nuances that I never could have imagined as she was diagnosed with Type I at an early age. Until now, I really never grasped the differences between a Type I and Type II. Already I have learned so much from your You Tube videos. I know by listening to your Podcasts I am about to embark on a whole new journey of education.

Thank you, Jen!
