I love the name of this awareness campaign. I mean, if anything ever deserved the moniker "24/7," it's this exasperating disease.

Actually, the full video campaign is called "The Betes: Now" and was put together for this summer's Children with Diabetes Friends for Life conference by D-blogger Bennet Dunlap's ueber-creative kids.  Read the details in my earlier report.

Mine seems to be the latest of 40 video shorts now published on their website. Tune in to see the likes of racing star Charlie Kimball, Brandy Barnes of Diabetes Sisters, CDE Gary Scheiner talking CGM, and several "pint-sized pump pros."  And of course, Yours Truly talking about my stuff:
