Based out of NYC, Marina Tsaplina is a versatile kinesthetic performing artist. As the Founder of The Betes organization, she brings the power and enchantment of theater, puppetry, and clown into the diabetes healthcare space to address emotional health and the lived-experience of diabetes. She is passionate in strengthening the patient voice, de-stigmatizing depression, and connecting different sides of the healthcare sector into a unified conversation though the power of theater.
During our interview, we chat about her diagnosis while living in Russia, and her deeply moving personal struggles and triumphs while dealing with diabetes and life in general. Marina is a warm, genuine soul who when she talks, you can’t help but to be enchanted by her loving personality. It was a great interview, and I count myself as lucky to be in the presence of such a strong, passionate leader in helping spread her message that “healthcare is a human story.”
