A big firecracker thanks to our T1 friend Brad Slaight, a professional actor and comedian in California who's been lending us his artistic talents recently. Of course, you may also known him under his alter-ego "Meter Boy," part of the Diabetes Hero Squad. Thanks for sharing your many talents with our pancreatically-challenged community, Brad!
