Got opinions about current diabetes devices & treatments and how they could be improved? Of course you do!

There are just twelve days left to enter our epic Diabetes Patient Voices Contest — a one-of-kind opportunity for 10* well-spoken patient advocates to meet with decision-makers in Pharma, technology, design, health gaming and other relevant fields to talk about what works for us and what doesn't. Who knows better than we, the patients, what we need on a daily basis?

*That's right: we have 10 full scholarships to give away to our DiabetesMine Innovation Summit, taking place on the beautiful campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, this coming November. Each of our winners will also receive a brand-spanking-new iBGStar system, the first-ever glucose meter to directly connect to an iPhone or iPod touch!

How cool is that?

We know there are 10 of you out there who deserve to win, so pllleeeeaaassee don't procrastinate any longer!
