#16: Tara Layman | Shedding the Shame of a T1D Body with Nudity… Tastefully

Over drinks with T1D friends one night, T1D Exposed founders, Kat and Tara, discussed fundraising ideas to support their beloved diabetes camp (where they had met the summer before), and other amazing diabetes non-profits. They laughed about how ridiculous it would be to start a T1D nude calendar… Well, in the time since its inception, The Nude Diabetes Advocacy Project has blown up! Tara allowed the DDG crew to probe her on the awkwardness of the shots, the beauty in the scars, and… the possibility of Ryan and Amber flying out to San Francisco for a shoot!

This week’s episode was made possible by TrialReach.com. They are changing the paradigm of diabetes clinical trials. In minutes, they connect you with diabetes trials in your neighborhood… or 100 miles away! To see it happen for yourself (and possibly get hooked up in a trial), click through the box below.
