World Diabetes Day 2017: Lauren Adams on the importance of inspirational role models


I think it’s really important to have female role models in the diabetes community because we become what we believe and we believe what we see. And there has to be people out there that we can look up to. I know when I first embarked on a big goal of running the Boston Marathon or having two healthy babies I looked and researched for people with diabetes that had done those things. And the reason why wasn’t that I didn’t think I could accomplish the goal But finding someone that had already accomplished it gave me the confidence to know that may in fact be possible. And then it was much easier to put in the work to make that a reality.
