Advocate and author Quinn Nystrom was diagnosed with type 1 as a young teenager, just a few years after her little brother developed T1D. Her high school prom date inspired the title of her book, "If I Kiss You Will I Get Diabetes."
Quinn shares her story, talks about running for office and tells us what's next.
Plus, MySugr CEO Frank Westermann on how his company tries to help make diabetes suck less (and we get Stacey's reaction to that motto).
