DiabetesMine Patient Voices Contest

Have an idea about how to improve the devices that are crucial to your diabetes management? Then you may be interested in entering this year’s “Patient Voices Contest,” run by DiabetesMine.com.

In an effort to “‘push the envelope’ on diabetes innovation,” the site is asking readers to submit a 2–3 minute testimonial describing the biggest issues they have with current diabetes technology and what they would like to see from device manufacturers.


The top 10 entrants as selected by the DiabetesMine team will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2012 DiabetesMine Innovation Summit at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California (taking place on November 16, 2012), 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. The 10 winners will also receive a brand-new iBGStar blood glucose meter, the first plug-in meter for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Instructions for submission are available here. Video entries will be accepted until June 12, 2012, and winners will be announced on June 27, 2012. For more information, visit DiabetesMine.com.
