“I have a personal stake in finding a cure for diabetes. Diabetes is in my family’s genes (both Type 1 and Type 2). Every day at the Asssociation is an opportunity to make a small difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. Through community programs and teaching I get to empower people to better manage this disease until we find a cure. Education is the key to lift the veil for a brighter tomorrow.” Lawrence joined the association in February 2011.
