Daniel founded the Type 1 Action Foundation in 2016 and is currently the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the organization. Daniel is an attorney admitted to practice law in the State of New York, and is the Managing Partner of Phelan Law, PLLC, where he focuses his practice on representing individuals with disabilities who are being discriminated against, as well as corporations, including non-profit organizations. Daniel is both a graduate of Florida International University where he received his Bachelor of Science, Cum Laude, as well as New York Law School where he received his Juris Doctor. Daniel also sits on the Board of Directors of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s NYC/Long Island Chapter.

Daniel has had Type 1 Diabetes since the age of 13, and living every day with T1D has given him first hand knowledge on the challenges that Type 1 Diabetics face every single day. Daniel played baseball both at the NCAA level in college, and eventually professionally at the independent level, proving that you can certainly do anything with T1D, and he now uses the platform of the Type 1 Action Foundation to show others that anything is achievable with T1D, and to never let the disease hold you back.
