People With Diabetes, We Need You!

I need you. The Diabetes community needs you. The FDA needs you!

But really, I just need you to take a quick survey to help the entire diabetes community.

To kick off National Diabetes Awareness month, on November 3rd, the FDA will host an unprecedented discussion between the diabetes community and senior agency leadership (both drugs and devices).  The event will be live webcast from 1 – 4 pm.

How much of a big deal is this?


Calling All Diabetics | We Need Your Support! | www.iamatype1diabetic.comThe event will include a panel of patients (Type 1 and Type 2), as well as representatives from ADA, JDRF, and diaTribe.

Each of us live with challenges due to our diabetes every day. Take a few moments to share your thoughts on what’s important when it comes to living with diabetes.

The survey, posted over at Diatribe, is short. The results will go directly to the wonderful people at the FDA. It will influence the conversation that will happen on November 3rd. Diatribe is asking those with diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, Pre-Diabetes, Gestational, etc.) to help gather all of our thoughts. Even if you aren’t the one suffering from diabetes, but it still affects someone close to you, please fill out this survey.

We need to show the FDA that patients care about these issues, that patients have valuable input to share, and that the treatment options we have are still not good enough. The survey is still awaiting your input.

Help the FDA understand what we want for our future. They’re listening. Let’s tell them.
