Quinn Nystrom was the morning Keynote Speaker at our 1st Annual Iowa JDRF TypeOneNation Summit.  Her message, “Learning to Live with Purpose and Passion” was incredibly inspiring to our audience of kids and adults.  Quinn has a very unique way of connecting with everyone in the room, whether you are newly diagnosed or have lived with T1D for many years.  Her story of growing up with T1D will having you both laughing and in tears as her story is very relatable to the masses.  After her message, Quinn had a line of people waiting to thank her and purchase her book.  She is very engaging to each and every person that approaches her and takes the time to provide inspiration to each and every one.  Eastern Iowa JDRF would definitely have her back to speak to our JDRF families and would recommend Quinn to speak at any of JDRF events around the country.

Our attendees of the 1st Annual Iowa JDRF TypeOneNation Summit gave Quinn 4.75 out of 5 stars on her presentation and had this to say about Quinn:
