What a wonderful interview on Sunday with T’ara Smith as we talked about living beyond Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes as well as Type 1 1/2 Diabetes – yes, there’s a new type.

T’ara was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in July 2017 at the age of 25. Since her diagnosis, she focused her academic studies and career on diabetes awareness and living a full life with it.

Outside the office, T’ara enjoys going to the movies, visiting parks with her dog, listening to BTS, and cooking awesome healthy meals. T’ara holds an MS in Nutrition Education from American University.
