Pitch for a Cure - Sophomore Medical Student

A picture of health. Connor's support network and family are strong and World renowned, yet his personal triumph and successful transition to self administration and management of his diabetes remains an hour-by-hour and moment-by-moment challenge.  It's a constant awareness, mental and grueling marathon that takes both a personal discipline and self awareness that face juveniles His parents, brother and sister and their extended family have been blessed with seeing and working with a person who is capable of mastering first his diabetes management; and then to the general and all too familiar challenges of everyday life.  

Taking into account Connor's energy, Lifelong learning, track record and understanding his inherent gifts to care for and inspire others to take over their own mastery of their diabetes and taking into effective control their own lives. Pitch for a Cure, founded by Conner's father and to which Conner has served as, spokesperson, role-model and active community advocate have remained a constant presence.

 The medical field is something that any insulin injecting diabetic can attest; the comfort level with phlebotomy, inherent understanding of dietary connectivity to over all health and the importance of regimented, consistent exercise and self monitoring; all lend themselves to medical field.  As Connor pursues his medical accreditation, his work with Pitch for a Cure continues and has shifted towards technology, media and development of TeleHealth support systems to aid families throughout the World through education, advocacy and the innovative use of technology.
