Tanner was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at eight years old and has refused to be defined by the disease. Tanner graduated with a 4.0 GPA from Ball State University in May 2017, where he was an Honors College student-athlete who double-majored in Health Science and Spanish. He was an NCAA Division I Varsity Swimmer, two-time team captain and four year conference finalist in the 200 Butterfly. Tanner is a former three-time state of Ohio champion.

A native of Dublin, Ohio, he is vital to the outreach, fundraising and advocacy efforts in the JDRF Central Ohio Chapter. In 2009, Tanner attended Children’s Congress, and in 2013, Tanner became the youngest individual to sit on the inaugural, international JDRF T1D Voices Council. Currently Tanner represents JDRF on the international Novo Nordisk DEEP task force. He has been to Copenhagen, Denmark several times to help pharmaceutical companies focus on patient centricity in decision-making processes.
Working with his endocrinologist, Tanner helped to edit a College Diabetes Survival Guide. Additionally, Tanner lives with celiac disease, noting the correlation between celiac disease and T1D.
