It’s a busy month of shows for GlucoLift!
Last Saturday we hung out with our local chapter at their Meet the Scientists Day at the La Jolla Institute of Immunology. In addition to speeches by leading doctors and diabetes researchers, there was an exhibit area out in the glorious San Diego sunshine, with representatives from a number of companies and non-profits, including Insulindependence, TCOYD, Tandem, and Dexcom (all San Diego-based). In addition, TrialNet was on site doing blood draws for relatives of people with Type 1.
This coming Saturday we’re journeying east (just in time for a blast of winter weather) for the JDRF Research Summit in Bethesda, MD. Moderated by everybody’s favorite Miss America, Nicole Johnson, this event features talks on the Artificial Pancreas, islet cell encapsulation, and more, as well as youth programs.
Next Saturday, it’s back east again, this time to New England for JDRF Providence’s “Living Well with Diabetes” Expo, which will give us a chance to catch up our friends from Jerry the Bear, six until me, and Bigfoot Child Have Diabetes.
Finally, we’ll wrap up our shows for March with another TCOYD, this time a little closer to home in Santa Clara, CA (Still a flight, but a short one!).
We’re excited to have the chance to connect with so many people and show them that glucose tablets CAN be all-natural, non-chalky, and delicious. I hope some of you will be able to see us at one of these upcoming shows!
