Oren Liebermann, a CNN correspondent based in Jerusalem, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in February, 2014. Type 1 diabetes interrupted a year-long travel adventure and Oren’s diagnosis was revealed just after he tackled the Annapurna Base Camp trek in Nepal. It was there that Oren and his wife realised life might never be the same when they returned to the US to assess Oren’s health and learn more about diabetes.
Wanting desperately to get back to the travel adventure they had dreamed up and planned, Oren decided that his diabetes wasn’t going to prevent him from doing the things he loved. Within one month he and his wife were back on the road prepared for another 6-months of travel with all the required insulin and supplies. Oren writes about his travel experience and diabetes in his first book, The Insulin Express, available in May 2017. Diabetes Voice had the chance to meet Oren and ask him about his book, type 1 diabetes and life as an international correspondent.
