Team Type 1 Co-Founder and CEO Phil Southerland is a true champion both on and off his bicycle. Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at seven months old, Southerland’s mother was told he would either be blind or dead by the age of 25. At 29, he is alive and thriving, and is a global diabetes ambassador educating patients and medical professionals throughout the world on what is possible with good control.
His memoir, “Not Dead Yet: My Race Against Disease From Diagnosis to Dominance” hits bookshelves on Tuesday, May 10th. The first two chapters can be previewed at: www.teamtype1.org/book.
Join Jeff and Heather as they interview this man (no mere mortal) who is destined to become the hero of every kid with type 1 diabetes who ever dreamed of beating the odds.
