Hello and welcome! My name is Katie Ford and I am a senior graphic designer at Loyola Marymount University. I love all things design and find the world around me to be a constant inspiration. For my project, I dreamed of doing something that helped others as well as possibly helping myself during the journey. Freshman year of college I was diagnosed with type one diabetes and it has been a very challenging process to get a handle on, but it also has opened my eyes to how life can look with a chronic disease. This is where DIA Magazine was born because I felt it was time to make T1D become less of a burden and more heartening for the people who deal with it everyday. So please, stay awhile and take a look!
