For most students, starting college is a big enough challenge. But for some young people, the transition is made even more difficult by the fact that they’re diabetic. “Student with Diabetes” is an organization that started at USF Health and has since spread to over 30 other college campuses, with the goal of creating a support community for 18 to 30 year olds and their loved ones.
USF is hosting the group’s third annual National Conference at the end of this month. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 gets a preview from Students with Diabetes’ creator, Miss America 1999, USF graduate Nicole Johnson.

Radio - During "Morning Edition" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday after the 6:45 AM and 8:45 AM newscasts | During "All Things Considered" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday at 5:44 PM | After "Florida Matters" on WSMR 89.1 Monday just before 10:30 PM
