Adam's first book, Bright Spots & Landmines: The Diabetes Guide I Wish Someone Had Handed Me, was published in May 2017 and received immediate praise for its actionable advice on food, mindset, exercise, and sleep. To date, over 180,000 copies of Bright Spots & Landmines have been sold/downloaded. Adam has also brought a patient perspective to numerous public venues, including FDA and NIH meetings, scientific and industry conferences, and patient events. He graduated summa cum laude from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, pursuing concentrations in marketing and health care management & policy. He is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, ultimately towards becoming a licensed therapist focused on diabetes and mental health.
