Our team will be out of the office tomorrow as we all head to Philadelphia to attend the 72nd annual American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions conference. We at the 'Mine are very excited to be covering this event for the 8th year running (!)

For the first time ever, the ADA is all over social media, not only with a twitter feed (@ADA_DiabetesPro), a Facebook page, an iPhone app and a Blackberry/Android app for attendees, but also by hosting a Blogger Happy Hour meet-and-greet event with ADA officials Friday evening! We are quite curious to learn all that we can about what's happening in diabetes industry and academia. And we know you're all curious too. Sooo....

Got specific questions you'd like us to address at the event? Please post them below!

We can't promise we'll get to everything, but we'll sure as heck try...
