Marie's Purpose: Empowering People With Diabetes

For Marie Schiller, Lilly’s purpose is personal. She has lived with type 1 diabetes since age 9, and now brings that experience to lead our Connected Care research, which combines digital technology with the delivery of medicine. This approach could personalize diabetes care through connected devices – using new digital tools, technologies and data-driven capabilities to help people manage chronic conditions, including diabetes.

"When I was diagnosed, I just wanted to live my life. I didn’t want to be slowed down," Marie said. "We have to continue to empower everyone with diabetes, to let people live at their best. Technology is an enabler to that empowerment."
