Reclaim Your Rise: Type 1 Diabetes with Lauren Bongiorno
T1D Research Updates from DRI CEO Sean Kramer
Show Notes

In this week’s episode, I’m joined by a very special guest, the CEO of the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, Sean Kramer. 

DRI is the largest and most comprehensive research center solely dedicated to curing diabetes. As the chief executive officer, Sean oversees the strategic and operational responsibilities of the company and drives the mission to provide the Diabetes Research Institute with the funds needed to discover a cure.  

Sean brings more than two decades of fundraising success and experience to DRI. And, as a fourth-generation diabetic and a father to three girls, Sean is very passionate about working collaboratively to create a world without diabetes.

In this episode, you'll hear Sean talk about… 

  • What his first 90 days as CEO looked like (he started his role at DRI just weeks before the onset of the pandemic) 
  • The powerful research being done right now that is getting us closer to a cure
  • His suggestions for avoiding “hope fatigue” 
  • The number one thing you should implement as a person, living with diabetes in order to set yourself up to be a candidate to receive the cure when it does come
