Diabetes By The Numbers: Mike Lawson.

Mike Lawson is easy to talk to. He’s been on the podcast before, in one of his many roles with Diabetes Hands Foundation. Today, Mike still has a number of roles… in addition to a full time job, he’s a board member at T1 International.

And he’s written a book!

Open Up Your Bag is a delightful children’s book that helps familiarize young ones to the everyday tasks that come with living with diabetes. As Mike mentions, it also helps facilitate discussion about life with diabetes between kids and their parents.

If you’re a fan of Mike’s artwork at DHF and elsewhere, you’ll notice it in the new book because he’s the illustrator too! In fact, that image above is me, along with the title of the book. And I love it.

In our conversation, we talk about the book, about Mike’s creativity, and his lifelong love of children’s literature. It’s a terrific chat, and a terrific book.
