OneTalk special presentation with Gary Hall Jr.


Olympic swimmer and diabetes advocate Gary Hall Jr. was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) 21 years ago, but hasn’t let the disease hold him back from greatness. Hall’s talents and drive have helped him win 10 Olympic medals, including five gold medals, three silver medals, and two bronze medals. That same sense of willpower also helped Hall through his diagnosis of T1D in 1999, which forced him to consider the effects the disease might have on his career and his life. After a brief hiatus from swimming, Hall returned to the Summer Olympics in Sydney in 2000, striking gold yet again. Join us as Gary Hall Jr. shares his story with our T1D group, OneTalk.
