Did you know that November is National Diabetes Month? Every year an estimated 50,000 people in Georgia are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Lawrenceville-based author Jessica Freeman is all too familiar with this reality. Freeman was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was only 3-years-old. After living with Type 1 for 25 years, Freeman was inspired to write The Type 1 Life to help parents of newly diagnosed Type 1 children navigate things like school sports, sleepovers, going to college, and other typical activities that can be more complicated following the diagnosis.
