Strive For Progress, Not Perfection | Scott Johnson, T1D and DOC Founder | Real Life Diabetes Podcast 47


Finally,  the most welcoming force in all of the Diabetes Online Community joined the show: Scott Johnson. If you’ve ever composed an article about diabetes, odds are, Scott has given you praise. As one of the founding members of the diabetes blogging world, Scott has watched the DOC bloom into a world that hosts 1000s of posts per year, and he couldn’t be more proud. He’s honest, approachable, and has done a lot of diabetes introspection over the years. Amber labeled him the “most huggable” person of the DOC. You’ll soon understand after listening.

Currently, he is Communications Lead, USA for mySugr and Patient Pathways Lead in the Diabetes Division of Delta Project Management. He manages a long-standing and award-winning blog “Scott’s Diabetes” that reaches hundreds of thousands of people annually. Scott is also a member of the Children with Diabetes faculty where he develops educational curriculums and content for the Friends for Life annual conference and regional events. He is on the Board of Directors for the Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation, served on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors for the Diabetes Hands Foundation, and was a founding member of Partnering for Diabetes Change, a coalition of people living with diabetes and industry representatives working to support underserved communities. He is interested in how these types of interactions including peer-to-peer support impact patient outcomes and routinely presents his work.
