"For stronger and better bonds between patients, the healthcare and the industry.
Less loneliness, more knowledge and more awareness."
Sofia was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2008 - a lifelong condition that til this day still has no cure and requires round-the-clock management. The level of knowledge in society is neither high enough for people with type 1 diabetes to feel safe, nor for funds for research to be collected at a fair pace.
Sofia has run Diabetesia as a self-employed entrepreneur since 2015 - and has over the years lectured, written magazine pieces and debate articles, blogged, participated in the media, developed campaigns and concepts, moderated discussions and performed consulting work mainly within marketing and communication.
Her long-term goal is to support people living with type 1 diabetes, but also to act as a spider in the web to create stronger bonds between patients, the healthcare and the industry.
Sofia is the community manager at the online community DIAMIGO - a platform for young people living with type 1 diabetes. A "safe space" to talk about everything between heaven and earth - without cues, prejudices and wrong advice.

Sofia has spoken at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, in the concert hall in Växjö, in front of Sahlgrenska's staff at the Swedish Exhibition Center in Gothenburg - but also before companies, at diabetes camps, schools and events of various kinds.
