It's an exciting day for us here at the 'Mine! Today we are hosting the fourth annual DiabetesMine Innovation Summit at Stanford School of Medicine in Palo Alto.

DM Summit Logo 2014

This is a unique coming together of all the "stakeholders" in the diabetes world, including patient advocates, device designers, Pharma Marketing and R&D leaders, health tech visionaries, passionate clinicians, regulatory experts, and more. The aim is to spark discussions and interactions that lead to faster, better development and design, and improved access to innovations that will improve life with diabetes.

Check out diaTribe's coverage of last year's Summit to get the gist.

Each year, we create a fresh new Patient Voices video to debut at the event (based on our annual Patient Voices Contest in which we select scholarship candidates). This year, the contest was tied into our new patient-crowdsourced video review hub, the DiabetesMine Test Kitchen.

So... without further ado...

drum roll, please...
