Aaron Kowalski is the Chief Mission Officer for the JDRF, a PWD and by all accounts a really good guy.
In this episode of the podcast Aaron and I kick back and talk about type 1 diabetes, the directions that the JDRF is taking and a bunch more.
Dr. Kowalski oversees JDRF-funded research aimed at accelerating the delivery of therapies that will help keep people healthy while living with diabetes and minimize their risk for developing diabetes complications, as well as treatments that will help those who have developed diabetic complications. Dr. Kowalski is an internationally recognized expert in the area of diabetes technologies and has been a leader since its inception in 2005 of the JDRF Artificial Pancreas Project, a multimillion-dollar initiative aimed at accelerating progress towards a closed-loop automated insulin-delivery system and diabetes technologies that will improve blood sugar control in people with diabetes. He has published numerous articles in the field, including co-authoring the landmark New England Journal of Medicine publication demonstrating the effectiveness of continuous glucose monitors in type 1 diabetes.
