Johanna participated in our “Day in the life of a type 1” project. Johanna is an adult type 1. She is a huge part of our DAD organization, Canine Hope For Diabetics, working as our resident type 1 for real time training with each dog. She almost always has multiple dogs, her dog Porcha, and at least 1 other DAD in training. With multiple DAD’s in the house, testing can happen a lot. Trust me, I know. Thank you for doing this Johanna!
