For the past few years I’ve enjoyed reading about the DiabetesMine Innovation Project. The opportunity for DOC members, as patients, to discuss what we need and want with the people who are making the products we use and the policies that affect us is so important. And I have such appreciation for all of the past delegates who took the time to be involved.
This year is particularly exciting for me, because I’ve been asked to be part of the selection committee and to attend the summit. I can’t imagine how hard a task it will be to choose 10 delegates from this year’s submissions. But I’m up to for the challenge - and I want YOU to make it harder!!
There is still time to get your Patient Voices application in. You can win a scholarship to the 2014 Innovations Summit on November 21st at Stanford School of Medicine. To apply you need to review a diabetes product on video for the DiabetesMine Test Kitchen and fill out the Patient Voices application. Listen, we use our diabetes products day in and day out - so a review is no sweat, right? Right!! You have until next Friday, June 20th, to apply. So what are you waiting for?
For more information and to hear what past participants have to say, be sure to check out Amy’s post on Diabetes Mine. And don’t forget to review the contest rules here.
