Description

Back in 2007, noted diabetes patient, blogger and patient activist Amy Tenderich wrote an open letter to the late Steve Jobs asking him to help design better diabetes devices. Since then, she has worked hard to amplify the voice of patient needs and bring innovation to diabetes via the DiabetesMine Innovation Project activities and events. These gatherings spawned the #WeAreNotWaiting movement – the ultimate grassroots patient-led innovation initiative, which has now gone global and is expanding even beyond diabetes. Learn how the diabetes and other disease communities are taking matters into their own hands, with examples of products and platforms being created to help patients better utilize devices and health data for improved outcomes. Examples such as increased “time in glucose range” and quality of life improvements will be discussed, as well as ways that health care providers can and should engage in this movement.
