The Every Step Counts Scholarship Program was created to recognize young adults for healthy living with type 1 diabetes as they transition to independent management. Scholarships not only celebrate applicants' positive attributes and accomplishments, but also offer a chance for self-reflection and growth (after all, no one has perfect blood sugars 100% of the time).
Living well with T1D is no small task, yet focusing on small, positive steps each day—taking insulin on time, counting carbs, exercising, learning new things, going over results, finding new inspiration, connecting with others who have T1D...you know the drill—adds up to lifelong benefits. It is my hope that this program will promote and inspire these small steps.
