Lauren Rapaport is the T1D Life Coach. Having lived with the ‘betes for over 43 years, she helps adult T1Ds and parents of T1Ds go from suffering to thriving by showing them how to change their mindsets about living with this condition.I had the privilege of meeting Lauren in person at an event with our mutual business coach, and it was a powerful reminder of the connection T1D creates in otherwise total strangers.
