Summary
"With gripping stories, colorful characters, and a wry sense of humor, Dan Hurley takes you to the wealthiest town in Massachusetts, where an outbreak of type 1 diabetes among children has parents up in arms. He travels to Logan County, West Virginia, with the highest rate of type 2 diabetes in the United States (and where the local Wal-Mart sells more snack cakes than any other Wal-Mart in the world). A type 1 diabetic himself since the age of 18, Hurley even participates in an extraordinary clinical trial of an artificial pancreas."--Cover page 2 & 3
