Dana Greenberg was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in 1972, at the age of 7. She was a professional fundraiser for over 20 years and is the proud mom of 3 kids, now aged 31, 28, and 23. Her youngest daughter was also diagnosed with T1D at the age of 8. After her daughter’s diagnosis, Dana quickly came to realize that she was in a unique position to help others because she understood both what it means to be a person living with T1D and what it means to be a parent of a child with T1D. Dana is the chair of DAC’s Collective Patient Circle, co-chair of DAC’s Patient Engagement Committee and co-leads several research projects as a person with lived experience.
