Distrust & Disparities: Diabetes & Insulin Rationing

In this episode we cover the tragic story of Antavia Gotitall Lee-Worsham, a young diabetic woman forced to ration her insulin due to absurdly high costs. And we highlight T1Diabetes Journey, the organization created by Antroinette Worsham, who is fighting to change laws and prevent more deaths.
