Our team is in Philadelphia right now at the biggest diabetes event of the year: the annual American Diabetes Association (ADA) Scientific Sessions conference. We're soaking up the abundant research and technology news, and will have much to report this coming week!
As a kick-off, please enjoy today's video interview (below) that I was able to snag with the ADA's CEO Larry Hausner.
Note that we've interviewed him before in a two-part printed series:
1) See here for Larry's explanation of the ADA's sweeping new strategy to improve outcomes.
2) See here for Larry's take on the Blue Circle, Paula Deen, and adults with type 1 diabetes.
