2015 DiabetesMine Patient Voices Contest


Would you like to attend the 2015 DiabetesMine Innovation Summit in Palo Alto, California, on a full scholarship? Then be sure to participate in this year’s “Patient Voices Contest,”[1] run by DiabetesMine.com.

In an effort to ensure that the voices of people with diabetes are heard by the “Powers That Be,” the site is asking readers to submit a “diabetes life hack,” along with filling out a standard application form[2], for the opportunity to lend their voices at this year’s Summit. The hacks should be procedures or actions that solve a problem, simplify a task, or reduce frustration in your everyday life with diabetes. (An example includes using an earthquake alert app[3] to amplify the sound of overnight continuous glucose monitor alarms.) Preference will be given to entrants that supply “photos, video, or other multimedia materials illustrating their hacks.”

The top entrants as selected by the DiabetesMine team will receive a scholarship — covering airfare, two nights in a hotel, and meals — to attend the 2015 DiabetesMine Innovation Summit at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California (taking place on November 20, 2015), 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, clinicians, investors, entrepreneurs, and more.

Entries will be accepted until April 24 at 5 PM PST, with winners being announced in late May. Full instructions[4] for submission are available on DiabetesMine.
