Mary Tyler Moore: Diabetes Advocate

mooremarytAll of us at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mary Tyler Moore.

As a TV icon, Mary captured the hearts of millions. As a woman living with type 1 diabetes and passionate diabetes research advocate, she graciously lent her voice and changed the lives of millions.

Having lived with type 1 diabetes for decades, Mary was a valued partner in the fight against diabetes up until the very end of her life.

Her legacy will live on through the groundbreaking research that is being done every day to get us closer to a cure.
