This monthly spotlight is a little different than normal. On September 5th, 2019, I had the opportunity to speak with Quinn Nystrom about #Insulin4All. The reason this spotlight is different is because we were able to record it. At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to the full interview on our YouTube Channel. First, let me give you a little background.
For those of you that don’t know Quinn Nystrom yet, she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes as a child. Ironically, just a few years after her brother was diagnosed. When her little brother was diagnosed, she began campaigning and raising thousands of dollars for diabetes research to help her younger brother. That was just the big sister in her.
She has spent the majority of her life fighting for her life and doing the same for others that battle all kinds of diabetes. Now, she is raising the bar. Quinn is officially running as a Congressional Candidate for the Minnesota 8th district to help be the change that she wants to see in the world. We have lost lives due to the high cost of insulin across the world and T1International is trying to change that.
In the interview, Quinn discusses #Insulin4All, her book, childhood, diabetes tips, and more.
Linked below is the full-length interview on our YouTube channel. Go check it out! I promise you, Quinn’s passion will ignite a spark in you to help in some way. You can help out in small ways. For example, sharing information on your social media channels can help a lot. Every little bit makes a difference.
