On his ninth birthday, John was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Since then, he has seen his diabetes as an opportunity, rather than a disability, to empathize with those who have chronic illness and provide solutions to fellow diabetics. Having completed diabetes research projects within the Yale School of Medicine and the Florida State University College of Medicine, paired with his extensive network in the JDRF, AdvaMed, and the American Diabetes Association, John leads DiaTech’s overall operations with a key focus on ensuring that DiaTech’s technology is designed around the needs of a person with diabetes. His leadership, vision, and personal insight into diabetes care is crucial for DiaTech’s successful development of patient focused technology. Prior to starting DiaTech, John worked 4 years within the pediatric endocrinology clinic of Dr. Larry Deeb, past President of the American Diabetes Association, while successfully completing a B.S. degree in Biological Sciences with a minor in Chemistry from Florida State University.
