Today, we’re sending a very big THANK YOU to the Arizona State Legislature for passing a budget that restores access to insulin pumps for adults with diabetes in the state’s Medicaid program. Until now, the Arizona Medicaid program included coverage for children with type 1 diabetes. However, once these children turned 21, they were no longer eligible for an insulin pump or supplies.  Read More >

As a person living with diabetes for the past twelve years, I know how extremely challenging and tedious the daily tasks can sometimes be. But I also know that it’s important to try to do what is in our control to try to change our perspective and the way we view our daily tasks involved with diabetes management.  Read More >

I am constantly amazed at young people affected by type 1 diabetes for their resilience, bravery, and ability to seemingly step beyond their years to advocate within their local, regional, and national communities to increase awareness, fund research, and improve therapy coverage. While most kids are concentrated on school, sports, and playing with their friends, these amazing young adults somehow find time for all of that and time for spreading awareness and educating others about diabetes.  Read More >

Last week was the personal highpoint of my year. One of the best things I get to do every day is answer questions and provide information to people with diabetes to make the management of their diabetes a little easier. At the same time, I work with many of the leaders of the company to get updates on product innovations like the closed loop, clinical studies to improve outcomes, and a variety of other topics including education and support.  Read More >

Friday night we left the camp at dusk – it is not safe to travel much after dark – just after the kids rambled off the bus and got settled in camp. It is located up in the mountains, where the well-off live. Anxious to get back, we got up early Saturday morning and headed back up the mountain. Heading up this mountain in Haiti was like swimming against the current, broken down vehicles, chaos in the streets, pot holes as big as cars, and animals running free – mainly dogs and goats.  Read More >

We have been in Haiti for three days – but it seems like a life time. When we arrived in the airport, it was chaos, and finding our host – Phillipe Larco, MD (an epidemiologist, and the husband of Nancy Larco, MD – the endocrinologist who runs FHADIMAC, the Haitian Diabetes Association and who we came to work with) – was an arduous task being jostled and harangued by a throng of Haitian men trying to help us so that we would pay them a dollar.  Read More >

One of the best parts of my job is getting to meet people who are doing amazing work in the diabetes community, whether one of our customers, an advocate or a diabetes researcher.
