A Place for All

Type-1 Like Me was founded in August 2021 by high school student Sam Whittle.

"After many years of shying away from sharing my type-1 status, I was ready to connect with young people newly diagnosed with type-1 diabetes. Then Covid-19 hit. Unable to visit and mentor kids like me in the hospital, I sought an alternate way to make this connection. I hope that Type-1 Like Me will bring the type-1 community together to have the candid conversations I always wanted to have and ask the questions I wanted to ask."

The forum is dedicated to offering plenty of opportunities for users to engage with each other in an interesting and safe online environment.
