Dr. Atkinson and Dr. Nierras wrote a beautiful piece on how Mary Tyler Moore’s courage and strength in the face of her diabetes diagnosis has inspired and lent courage to many other individuals living with the disease, and the everlasting impact her tireless advocacy and work with congress has had and will always have on diabetes research in the future.
