INDY Race Car Drive Charlie Kimball Shares His Story of Living with & Driving with Diabetes

Since November is Diabetes Awareness Month, it's the perfect time to find out about one of the heroes within the diabetes community.

Charlie continues to be the first licensed driver with diabetes to win an INDYCAR race. But what really sets this racer apart may be his fan base. The diabetes community stands strong behind Kimball, who is making great strides while living with diabetes. For many patients and their families, the diagnosis can be daunting. For Kimball, his diagnosis 7 years ago (October 16, 2007) almost caused him to give up his dream of racing at the highest level.

Charlie Joins us to discuss his challenges, how he's worked to overcome them, and offer advice to others.

Check out the interview below:

Charlie Kimball is an open-wheel race car driver with Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing with the Verizon INDYCAR series. Now in his fourth INDYCAR season, Kimball, driver of the No. 83 Chevrolet, is the first and only licensed driver with diabetes in the history of INDYCAR to win a race. He also is the first driver with diabetes to qualify for, compete, and lead laps at the famed Indianapolis 500!

I want to thank Novo Nordisk for this interview opportunity! I also want to thank Charlie Kimball for taking out the time to discuss and answer my questions.
