Our team is sprinting around the Philadelphia Convention Center for the 72nd American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions this weekend, trying to pick up on all the latest and greatest progress in the diabetes world! Here are some snapshots and interesting nuggets on what we're seeing and hearing.

Photos inside the massive Expo Hall with hundreds of exhibitors and industry folk are not allowed, so we got some fun "candids" instead.  We should note that walking around the exhibit hall aisles, we saw at least a dozen coffee shops at vendor booths where you can order up specialty java drinks. Hey, anything to keep the energy up with all this research and technology excitement!

We've been live-tweeting at @DiabetesMine using the hash tag #ADA2012, and using this, you can also find all the other people tweeting the conference.

The conference bags everyone received when checking in, full of pamphlets and guides and a whole bunch of very heavy diabetes materials.

 

 

 

We're in the City of (Diabetes) Love... Can't you tell?!

Hundreds of research posters are displayed, chock full of the latest science and research findings.

Approximately 200 media people (us included!) had checked in by Sunday mid-afternoon, with dozens inside the press room at any given time. Even a few fellow insulin pumpers! Here's hoping for diabetes media accuracy!

A press briefing on T1DExchange news about their newly created national type 1 diabetes registry. They've collected from 25,000 people with type 1 so far;  it is the most comprehensive analysis of type 1 people in the U.S. ever conducted! More details on that soon...

We're attending an array of meetings and receptions, and one breakfast session Saturday required me to fill out a form with all my credentials... Isn't this what they wanted?!
