Andrea Roth

Award-winning author and diabetes advocate

A diabetes awareness advocate, author of two self-published books about diabetes, wife and mother, Andrea K. Roth enjoys speaking about promoting healthier lifestyles through living with the disease.

“The general public is unaware of the history of diabetes, the devastating effects of the disease pertaining to the world economy and world health. What I share is a shocking learning opportunity of why this particular disease needs to be cured,” she said.

A resident of Sacramento, Calif., she has spoken to school children and the elderly about the health concerns surrounding diabetes. She enjoys sharing her ongoing learning about diabetes research, listening to her audience and sharing updated knowledge with readers of all ages.

Ms. Roth graduated from Quinsigamond Community College in 1984 with an Associate degree in executive secretarial sciences. She went on to attend Worcester State University for a bachelor’s of science, El Camino College in Torrance, Calif., for an Associate in science and a master of arts in business from the University of Phoenix.

She is the author of “My Diabetic Soul — An Autobiography” that reflects how she has dealt with this disease for more than 50 years.

Her second book, “My & My Money... a Child's Story of Diabetes,” is the first in a series of its kind concerning T1D (Type One Diabetes) while exposing the increase of diabetes in animals. The next book in the series is due to be published this July.
