Chelsea won’t let her T1D get in the way of her dreams–if anything, she believes managing the disease has made her even stronger. As a labor and delivery nurse, she is on her feet all day, working long, sometimes overnight shifts. With such a hectic schedule, she relies heavily on her Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) to help manage her blood sugar. The CGM lets her take care of herself and her patients at the same time.
Taking care of people is clearly in Chelsea’s genes. Last summer, she served as the nurse for a camp for kids with T1D. Finding and giving support within the T1D community has been a huge help for Chelsea and it can be for you too!
