Life Story: The Importance of Early Support

In the August 2022 edition of our magazine, Deborah speaks with Jean Langford about her Type 1 diabetes journey after her diagnosis at the young age of 11. Now at the age of 27, she has experienced the impact that both an under-resourced health service, and a properly-resourced service, can have.


Jean recently moved to Edinburgh where she is studying to be a dietitian. Her aim is to return to Ireland when she is finished so that she can try to make a difference for people with diabetes here
