Joe has been living with type 1 diabetes for over 50 years. He grew up in New York but now lives in California.
He is a registered nurse, diabetes educator and family therapist and works extensively with both patients and professionals on the “Family-Approach to Diabetes Management”; helping children with type 1 diabetes and their families to cope with their child’s diagnosis and daily challenges of living with diabetes.
His ebook “A Type 1 Guide to the Universe” introduces a new way to learn to thrive with diabetes. It is the first book to integrate the psychological and emotional aspects of dealing with diabetes into the core of its approach.
