About: Aaron Albanez
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA and have been a type 1 diabetic since 2003. I have previously attended the in-person conference for TCOYD and have had the opportunity to volunteer with them. TCOYD is an organization I hold in high regard and have made strides in my diabetes management thanks to this wonderful organization. Diabetes is an aspect of my life that I have aligned with my career goals. I originally obtained my BS in Chemistry from UC San Diego, but have now shifted my focus on public health. I am currently working to obtain my Masters Degree in Public Health with an emphasis on Health Education and Promotion from the University of Alabama. I have worked in the healthcare field since 2017 and hope to be involved with diabetes management and care once I obtain my MPH. Outside of the office, you can usually find me roaming around Main Street in Disneyland with my wife, Oksanna.
