Meg’s story begins with a planned trip to Africa as part of a public health program at Johns Hopkins University. Shortly before her departure, she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. In this interview, Meg talks about being the third of four daughters to be diagnosed with T1D, and shares her enthusiasm for participating in clinical trials, and why she encourages others to get involved: “If you can, you should. I think it’s important to recognize we’re here today because people participated in them before us.”
