Did you think that JDRF was all about fundraising to cure diabetes? It is, but that’s certainly not all they do for us. We got to hear from Hasan about the efforts that he and his group work on that help all of the advocates around the nation steer the direction of government policy, research funding, and voting up or down important bills.
We spent the first half of the show talking business, which was enlightening and powerful. But not nearly as fun as getting to know more about Hasan. A proud Marine and proficient slugger, Hasan shared a bit about his personal life and activities. If you skim through his Facebook page you can find some slug shots… I swear, that conversation raised as many questions as it did answers. I wish we would have dug into it earlier in the episode.
