Cory Conacher: Professional Hockey Player living with T1
This week we are excited to interview Cory Conacher, a professional NHL hockey player with the Tampa Bay Lightning who is living with Type 1 Diabetes. Cory was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 8, and has pursued his passion of Ice Hockey his entire life. Cory has played professional Hockey for over 10 years. In 2012, Cory won the Les Cunningham award, the AHL's League MVP, becoming just the 4th Rookie in league history to earn this award. I really enjoyed our conversation and Cory's story is an example of grit and never losing focus on your goals. He has successfully leveraged Type 1 Diabetes as a motivator, and continues to push through obstacles. Enjoy!
