Heather Lampert

On today’s show, we have Dr. Heather Lampert. Heather is a physician, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Massachusetts, and she holds the William Randolph Hearst Fellowship in Clinical and Translational Research. She is not only smart and insightful, she also happens to be someone living with type 1 diabetes. 

In this episode, we not only go deep into Heather’s background, but we talk about three key areas that are of critical importance to anyone living with type 1 diabetes. We talk about exciting research in the area of diagnosis and the gut microbiome as it relates to type 1, Heather then zeros in on new technologies in the world of treatment and management, and we wrap up with a conversation about the potential for a cure for type 1.

This is a unique opportunity to dive into the clinical and research science as it relates to type 1 diabetes, and learn from someone who is not only directly impacted by type 1, but also someone who is embedded in cutting edge of science.
