Who is Sugar Free Shawn?Shawn Shepheard Speaking

Shawn Shepheard is a speaker, advocate and champion for those who want to live happy and well with diabetes.

Diagnosed with type one diabetes in 1997, Shawn knows first hand the challenges that face those living with diabetes; however, by sharing personal examples and experiences from his own journey, he has inspired many people to push the boundaries of what is possible in their own lives.

Shawn was awarded the National Advocacy Leadership Award and Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to honor the significant contributions and achievements he has made to the field. He has spoken to over 10,000 people across North America, both those living with diabetes and the health care providers who care for them.

When Shawn is not out and about sharing his inspiring message you’ll find him playing hockey (or cheering for his favorite team), running marathons in support of Team Diabetes or spending time with his family in his hometown of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
