Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Do you have ideas about how to best use diabetes technology to improve health outcomes and lives? Then you’ll want to enter this year’s “Patient Voices Contest,” run by DiabetesMine.com.

In an effort to spark discussions “that lead to faster and better development, design, and accelerated adoption of innovations to improve life with diabetes,” the site is asking readers to submit a 2–3 minute video testimonial, presentation slides, or photos describing what health outcomes matter to them the most; how they want diabetes technology to fit into their lives; and/or what their biggest concerns are about the changes to health-care reimbursement.

The top 10 entrants as selected by the DiabetesMine team will receive a $1,000 travel scholarship to attend the 2013 DiabetesMine Innovation Summit at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California (taking place on November 15, 2013), where they will act as delegates for the diabetes community. They will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from product design, pharmaceutical, and mobile health companies, as well as regulatory agents, investors, and more.

Entries will be accepted until July 5 at 8 PM EST. Full instructions for submission are available on DiabetesMine.com.
