I've worked with the Diabetes Hands Foundation since 2009. I've participated in their excellent Big Blue Test Event, participated in the TuAnalyze project and participted in 5681 discussions at TuDiabetes.org (acidrock23....). Diabetes is a unique disease in that people with diabetes are obligated to beceme their own doctors in order to treat the disease successfully. I have explored online research, both through diabetes and through fantasy baseball and I am certain that a message board, offering conversation as well as checks and balances, is the best way to find answers quickly. Diabetes Hands foundation is clearly an organization committed to being more than a message board by finding innovative and participatory methods to harness the vast amount of data accumulated by people with diabetes in informative events members are able to participate in. Please consider them strongly for your recognition. S
