Pamela Durant is the mother of a Type 1 diabetic. Her son was diagnosed with Type 1 in 2009 when he was only 20 months old. Despite 15 years of international healthcare management experience at the time, the diagnosis led Pam through a steep learning curve about diabetes. As she began to advocate and present at medical conferences, she soon recognized that her experience and knowledge could potentially help others navigate the fear and confusion of the condition. In 2016, she left a successful corporate career of 20 years and founded DiapointME to help those touched by diabetes.
