Are you a teen with diabetes with some strong opinions about the best and worst designed tools currently on the market for managing your illness? Tell us what you think!

Note that you don't have to be a teen, but we are encouraging input from that age group, since adults with diabetes will be well-represented next month at an exciting "meeting of the minds" we are hosting in two weeks at Stanford University: The DiabetesMineâ„¢ Innovation Summit. It's an intimate get-together of patient advocates, entrepreneurs, design experts, and Pharma industry leaders from the marketing, R&D, legal and regulatory sectors to delve into new approaches to achieving truly "patient-centered" solutions. (We hope to gather an even bigger group next year.)

Please take 3 min. to watch our Teen Ambassador Cory Oringer, who — heavily inspired by Apple's Steve Jobs — put this amazing video together all by himself!
