This week Stacey talks to renowned researcher, long time pediatric endocrinologist and all around good guy Dr Bruce Buckingham. He decided to become an endo after experiencing diabetes camp early in his residency, more than 50 years ago.
Dr. Buckingham tells Stacey he put his first patient on an insulin pump during a clinical trial in 1979! He was principal investigator of the Medtronic MiniMed 670G at Stanford University and he shares his reaction to a recent study that showed some people are struggling with this first commercially available hybrid closed loop.
In our Community Connection this week, an important – and if I’m being honest – a bit of an awkward conversation about race. Comedian Chelcie Rice and I talk about how to get more people of color at diabetes events. He’s great.. I’m the awkward one.
Our Tell Me Something Good this week.. Beyond Type 1 makes it the Webby awards and some great T1D kids speak up about how much diabetes camp means to them.
