Peter Friedfeld was diagnosed twice with diabetes—first, in 2014 as Type 2, then correctly diagnosed two years later as a Type 1 adult. Peter spends his professional career in the eye-care industry and is passionate about connecting and engaging in the Type 1 community. A lifelong explorer and traveler, Peter also enjoys hiking, biking, cooking and yoga. His passion for biking created an opportunity to lead a team of riders on the East End of Long Island—raising funds and awareness for the Diabetes Research Institute, which he hopes to expand into a multi-city annual event. When not traveling and sharing his stories (@hamptons_t1dyogi), Peter enjoys time on the beach with his two dogs Russel and Bella in the Hamptons and sharing life’s adventures with his husband Patrick.
