PhD student turns her diagnosis into motivation
Lauren Dahlin knows that big goals are best achieved a step at a time.
It’s something she’s learned as a PhD candidate and triathlete, living with type 1 diabetes.
Dahlin was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2017, when months of incorrect diagnoses landed her in the emergency room. Finally having a definitive diagnosis was a relief, but it came with an understanding that her life would change forever.
